BUSHFIRE
+++ HEAVY BLUES ROCK FROM DARMSTADT +++

An old man, a porch, a rocking chair. There he sits, running his fingers through his white beard. Sipping from his can of beer. Looking into the distance. Now he stands up. Grabs his shotgun. Screams. Shoots. Sits back down. Wipes the dust off his can. Keeps on rocking on his chair. It‘s scenes like these that I imagine while listening to „Heal Thy Self“. Bushfire‘s new album, the five-piece from Darmstadt that sounds nothing like Germany or Europe with their „heavy stoner blues“. Small wonder: the band members are rooted all over the world, from Germany to Italy to Portugal, from Sweden to the USA – especially singer Bill Brown‘s American soul provides for this very special Southern character. This feeling of dirt and sweat, intimacy and love, anger and desperation. It‘s just this mixture that distinguishes the new album from its predecessors: Bushfire do no longer follow any musical or imposed boundaries – they just do what they want. Starting with the rocking opener „Failure“ and the doomy „Glossolalia“, the journey takes us to the somewhat psychedelic „Elephant“. „Tuff Love“ has a surprisingly up-beat riff, while „Brother“ slows down and puts an arm around your shoulder. „Dream“ combines all the proven Bushfire ingredients and delivers a finale to remember.

By now, Bushfire‘s bio reads like that of one of the really big bands: three demo EPs and two albums, shows and tours through half of Europe, TV airplay on DMAX, a loyal fanbase – all of that WITHOUT any label or management. Because Bushfire means self-determination, passion, freedom, just DIY in its purest form. There‘s the band doing handicraft, drawing, designing, thinking, sawing, even signing in blood.

Speaking of blood: now you are laying there, you feel this unknown warmth on your forehead, almost passed out. Think of the old man in his rocking chair. Feel grateful. Come slowly back zu your senses, realize and understand. Heal Thy Self. Once more.
