Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

FireBug’s record contains energetic, alternative music of the highest quality. Singer Juliette Tworsey has a dynamic voice that suits the music well.

The title track is a sedate, psychedelic swirl. Tworsey sounds like Concrete Blonde’s singer here. Jules Shapiro manages a nice rhythm with his expert guitar playing.

“Hole in My Head” is a punky song where Juliette adds the right attitude with her vocal power.

“Packin’ Shoes” is another song that displays Juliette’s amazing voice.

“Beautiful Day” has a positive message and some nice mandolin playing.

The heavy rockin’ “Dogs” sees the band display a slight resemblance to Jane’s Addiction.

FireBug’s new album is varied in sound and makes for a great listen.
