ESNS: 2017
AVI ON FIRE is the new and first solo project of Bram Wesdorp, former frontman of Neighbour Neighbour and now part of Yellow Grass. Now his new band AVI ON FIRE is here, with quirky songs that never go out of your head. Alternative pop music with a touch of Foster the People, some MGMT, Phoenix and Foals, but most of all AVI. The first single 'Pearls' was released in the summer of 2016 and got over 500k plays on Spotify within 2 months. With this single AVI was invited to play on Dutch national television, became '3FM Serious Talent' and got a lot of attention on international blogs. With a second single early next year, the future is bright for this young band. Strange? A little bit. Hits? You decide."Avi On Fire's debut single is called "Pearls," and it's a huge piece of chorus-centric indie pop reminiscent of bands like Grizzly Bear and Passion Pit in their heyday. It's a format that has been all but abandoned in favor of sleek electronic, minimal pop, and and hip-hop influence, but "Pearls" is proof that a big, hummable slice of indie pop can still hit the spot. Of those yummy, indeed." - Pigeons & Planes, 2016.
