MUSIC NEWS: Black Peaks Release New Single ‘Electric Fires’
Black Peaks have released a new single titled Electric Fires, another taste of their forthcoming album All That Divides.
“Electric Fires was one of the first songs we wrote for All That Divides, and was one that had a few live outings towards the end of the Statues tour,” explains vocalist Will Gardner. “The song in many ways is one of our most straight-forward. Lyrically the song is a bit of a sarcastic comment on the beliefs of certain conspiracy theorists, Flat-Earthers etc. Essentially we just had fun with that idea, and wrote a song about how our Alien forefathers came here from Mars at the dawn of civilisation to build the pyramids, which, of course, 100% totally happened. Stay woke, kids.”
