London based band Firestations have just released their latest single called ‘Undercover’. It is released on Lost Map Records on 25th April. It’s the first single taken from their forthcoming album ‘Thick Terrain’, out 14th July, and is, the band say, “an effervescent pop song about depression and self-discovery”. The band consists of Michael Cranny, Laura Copsey, Martin Thompson, Tom Hargreaves and Neil Walsh. Together they make music spanning genres from shoegazey indie to synth pop and harmony-driven psychedelia.

Firestations are a big favourite of ours with their shimmering, alt-pop sound. They manage to create a hazy landscape, replete with thoughtful and incisive lyrics, the soothing harmonies of Mike Cranny and Laura Copsey sometimes masking the melancholia of their words. Undercover is a delicate and reflective track, a hazy reflection on overcoming difficult personal times.
Their last release was the 2021 EP trilogy Automatic Tendencies, which garnered extensive support from BBC 6 Music including repeat plays from Gideon Coe, Cerys Matthews, Radcliffe & Maconie and in particular Marc Riley, who hailed the track ‘Small Island’ as “a perfect pop song”.
Firestations are appearing live at The Cavendish Arms, 18th May, 2023.
Firestations release Undercover, 25th April on Lost Map Records. Album Thick Terrain will be released on limited-edition 12” vinyl and digital platforms on July 14, 2023.
