Review: Letters Sent Home – Fire In Me










Letters Sent Home

Fire In Me – Hassle Records

‘Fire In Me’ has themes of struggle and hope. Inspired by vocalist Emily’s battles with mental health and wanting to bring attention to important issues that many face, Letters Sent Home’s third EP comes straight from the heart. ‘Fire’ is about looking within yourself for strength and guidance despite the pain and grief you may be feeling inside and out with yourself. ‘Born To Die’ is a song of survival in a world not built to be so sympathetic to people’s struggles. ‘Phoenix’ as the name suggests is about rising from the ashes and coming through the other side of darkness. The dark pop/alt-rock influences make this an accessible listen for many. You can hear the passion, sorrow, and courage in Emily’s vocals throughout the release. She creatively paints a story making you hang on to every word. Their digital release also features a stripped-back version of their hit ‘Misery Loves Company’ from their previous E.P. The track flows well with the subject matter with melancholy piano and instrumentals. The physical copy comes with two bonus tracks of the original featuring Joel Quartuccio. Although talking about difficult topics the EP is overall uplifting and a beautiful listen.
