AUDIO FIRES based in Ireland came together in late 2012, four experienced musicians having played in various outfits brought together by a collective love of the song, guitar based music and the ability to play it live. Their sound is a mix of infectious vocal lines, big guitars with a healthy dose of pop making their own unique blend of Indie Rock.
