Post-hardcore heroes, LA DISPUTE touring Australia - playing Solbar September 22
Bobby Alu's got a brand new banger in 'Fire', a tropical harmony-laden ode to finding momentum.
“Fire is about good flow", Bobby explains of the single which premiered with Zan Rowe on Double J Mornings last week. "Searching inside yourself to find the courage to push your energy into things you love. Instead of finding discomfort and fear, you find power and fire. I love these moments and when I started writing this song I was searching for that fire in myself again. This made me realise when this type of feeling comes by, it’s time to strike and make most of the goodness."
