Greek Fire make the kind of rock ‘n’ roll that lifts spirits. Their Lost EP literally delivers one anthem after another. Of course, you’ve heard the undeniable “Top of the World” fueling the Big Hero 6 previews, but after one listen, you’ll want to crank it over and over again. The guitars feel downright energetic as Moon’s vocals immediately captivate on the catchy hook.
Meanwhile, “A Real Life” matches that catchiness with an equally powerful post-hardcore intensity. It’s never forced though. Rather, the track’s energy becomes amplified by the elegant articulation of heavy and hypnotic sounds. “Coming Alive” makes good on its title promise, bringing a different kind of vibrancy to the forefront as the rhythms simply scorch and sizzle.
Moon teams up with Anberlin singer Stephen Christian for a feisty and fiery take on David Bowie and Trent Reznor’s “I’m Afraid of Americans”. It’s scarily a propos and artfully irresistible. Everything leads up to “Fever”, which sees Ryan Philips shine on the six-string, while Johnny Venus’s drums lock in flawlessly with Mark Joseph Roth’s bass.
You’re going to reach another level, maybe even the “Top of the World”, after one listen to Lost.
