Friends from school, FlashFires have a unique bond that shines through in their song writing and their live shows. They are writing fabulous tunes that belie their youth and sitting somewhere on the indie/rock spectrum, unrestricted by genre, the band are all music fans with eclectic tastes and are not frightened to take risks and test out different styles and sounds in their compositions.

Already with big US & UK management behind them, FlashFires can also count Led Zep’s Jimmy Page amongst their rapidly growing legion of fans after he popped along to see one of their London shows.

If you haven’t had the chance to check them out yet, they really are a must-see. Having already supported the likes of Ash, The Subways, The Rifles & Catfish & The Bottlemen amongst others, along with their youth, energy and abundance of talent, this bunch young Basingstoke lads are going to be making a big impact on the music scene in the coming months!
