HOT TAKES: Getting to know SAFIRE

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

1: Who are you?

I’m a British/Irish songwriter/visual artist from Hackney. I like eggs, GOT and collect tiny dogs. That covers the basics. I write music tor women and anyone who identifies/relates to females and feminine energy.

2: What is your take on your sound?

I’m a genre fluid artist and I just fuse my favourite aspects of metal, pop, industrial and EDM together. I enjoy making upbeat/fast tempo tracks and venting my frustrations and vices for all to hear.

3: If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

I only have two tracks released but of those two I’d probably say SHINE B!TCH. We all need a pick me up right now. It’s been a stressful run for everyone and this track was written to encourage and uplift me/you!

4: What is the plan for the end of 2022 and into 2023?

I’m writing an EP with one of my producers over December 2022 and have a new track called Angels & Demons coming out on the 13th January 2023. I’m working on the visual arts side of my project in the beginning of Jan with shoots and video shoots.

5: What is the one song you wish you’d written?

ToolHooker With A Penis’. Absolute genius!

6: What three bands or artists inspired/continue to inspire you?

I’m a big Tool fan and I’ve always loved Incubus and MJ. The music is just so unique and bravely written/expressed.

7: Where can our readers see you live/listen to your music?

I don’t have plans to perform live yet as I’m working on an EP and all my focus is with that for now. I’m hoping to get some dates in the diary for the later part of 2023. You can listen to my tracks on all streaming platforms and watch videos on YouTube/TikTok.

8: What zoo animal would you be?

Not to get up on my ‘soap box’ but I wouldn’t be a zoo animal as I absolutely hate seeing animals in zoo’s. They’re often too small and the treatment isn’t widely great. I would however be a panther. I’ll leave it to you guys to figure out why.
