Expanding seamlessly from murky psychedelia into howling rock, “Feed the Fire” is a new track from Freddy Hall. The third single from the New York-based artist’s upcoming album, DAZY, “Feed the Fire” maintains an engrossing pull throughout. Ample tonal variety is apparent in the first minute, with various soundscapes expanding thereafter. The introspective, laid-back verses give off a hypnotic pull, as does the “never be the one that you needed,” bridge; these sections contrast enjoyably with the amped-up feeling of the chorus, in addition to the sweltering guitar solo showcased in the final minute. “Feed the Fire” both excites and lulls, all in cohesively enjoyable form.
Per Hall, the track “explores themes of addiction and loss, while offering hope for people struggling with invisible pain. I made this single’s music video using shadow puppets, as the song was deeply inspired by the spiritual practice of “Shadow Work;” the act of conversing with and honoring our inner demons.”
“Feed the Fire” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of October 2021’ Spotify playlist.
