We are very honoured to bring you a first taste of the new single ‘Man On Fire’ from Dublin outfit Fruitz. ‘Man On Fire’ is an anthemic indie gem – soaring choruses compliment yearning verses over a cantering trot replete with scything guitars and driving percussion.

Singer and guitarist James Keegan says of the track:

This is a statement release from us, it is the start of a new chapter for Fruitz. ‘Man On Fire’ is a perfect example of our sound and our vision. It’s a fairly old tune now, I wrote this in 2020 the day after we supported Louis Berry. The tune actually came from the name of the tour he announced that day, “The Man On Fire Tour” and it kind of just stuck. Musically as well you may hear his influence. The timing to release this song just felt right, it’s a proper indie banger.

Adam Whelehan on bass adds:

This new song encapsulates lively rock guitar sounds, Punchy bass lines and a driving drum progression.

It is certainly is a stadium ready pop blast – think of a nod to The Kings of Leon and U2 and a touch of eighties and Britpop sparkle but with an unique and dynamic style of its own:

This is exciting pulse quickening stuff from a very exciting band. ‘Man on Fire’ is out on 16 February 2024 and available through all the usual download and streaming sites here.
