Hailing from Newcastle, four-piece Firekites have just released their haunting single ‘The Counting’, which is to appear on their soon-to-be-released second album Closing Forever Sky. The album is set to be released on August 15th, and was recorded in Newcastle, mixed in Chicago. Characterised by aesthetic intricacies and ‘Thurston-spaz and tremolo swoop’ guitars, the band’s second album is described as being darker than the first.
