A brand new track with all the sky-high ambitions that its title may promise, the South Wales band Broken Fires return with an anthemic cut that heralds both a new partnership with Cardiff-based label Phwoar & Peace, plus a fresh batch of material planned for release throughout 2021. At just three-and-a-half minutes long, Dreamer is a sugar rush short-and-sweet sonic thrills, and one that reflects on our own short-lived existences. The band spoke with The Fountain about the new track and plans for rest of the year.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Dreamer?

It feels like an age since we released new music and its pretty hard to beat that feeling when people tell you what they liked about a song. The response to Dreamer so far has really made us feel like we are onto a good thing with this album because we know there is more up our sleeves! 

TF: How would you sum up this track in one sentence?

An indie twinkle-pop nugget, with a hint of sadness, about being allowed to dream of better days. 

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?

We have a bunch of other releases out on Phwoar & Peace, with an EP first and building up to an album that we are extremely proud of. The plan is to play as many songs in as many places as possible (if we are allowed) and meet as many people to get geeky and talk music. 

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?

Hands down it’s Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff. We love that place and it holds such amazing memories for us. We haven’t played Scotland yet, but can’t wait to make it up there! We can’t wait to get out there, make some noise and have a beer.
