Count to Fire
In Another Life
(Count to Fire)

Second album from Exeter’s Americana-influenced band, who formed over a mutual love for Wilco and My Morning Jacket. The album was recorded in Canada at Catherine North Studios (Josh Ritter, Feist) and produced by Colin Cripps (Kathleen Edwards, Oh Susanna) The band has a talent for capturing a warm sound, which takes influence from the melancholic feel of alt-country. And they maintain their own individuality in the process. They cater for both ends of the spectrum, from the stomping and upbeat Screen Play, which opens the album, to the tearjerker, City Lights, in which violinist Joe Mansfield’s really works his magic. This is a beautiful, organic and well-produced album that’s bursting with numerous examples of fantastic songwriting. Count to Fire are another example of a great band from the South West who don’t get nearly enough attention and praise. Well, you know what? They fucking well SHOULD.
