Tongues of Fire
Indie Post-Punk in Asheville, NC
Most bands fit cleanly within a genre but Tongues of Fire don't. At their heart they are a punk band, their shows are unhinged, the music is straightforward and hard hitting, there is no trace of pomp or excessiveness but they are accessible and there is a well crafted feel to what they do. The production on their albums is clean and the instrumentals deceptively complex. They have many contemporaries and influences like Bloc Party, Slint, IDLES and The Fall of Troy but can't be compared to them. Tongues of Fire are firmly themselves, and intent on moving the scene forward.
