The track perfectly showcases everything that makes Yukon Blonde such a pleasure. It's catchy, boarders on danceable, and comes complete with a "whoo whoo ahh ahh" chorus. "Fire" combines the instant pop likeability of The Shins or Nada Surf with the subtle country undertones of groups like Blitzen Trapper and Wilco. The killer harmonica solo that closes the song hits you like a ray of sun bursting through the clouds.
Fans of "Fire" should make listening to Yukon Blonde's self-titled debut a top priority. Meanwhile, Fire // Water is out now on Nevado Records.
