Fire Flies are an NYC based indie-techno pop band. Co-founded by Dan Romer (singer-songwriter), Wil Farr (guitar), Matt Krahula (bass) and Seth Matthew Faulk (drums), Fire Flies met and formed four years ago while students at SUNY Purchase's Conservatory of Music.
"Two New Sciences," recorded in the basement of their Brooklyn apartment, follows in the footsteps of their first CD, "Babobabs In The Basement," recorded in 2005 in their dorm room at SUNY.
Consisting of a solid yet complex rhythm section, masterful guitars and alien technology keyboards, "Two New Sciences" features poetic lyrics accentuated by hook-driven melodies. Fueled by proficient musicians, beautiful arrangements and great songs, the first line "I don't understand you, but I try," defines the sentiment that illustrates the songswriters note to self. Bright beats juxtaposed with anxious lyrics make up 12 songs spanning an overall theme of uncertainty, love, frustration, dispair and the never-ending parties that feed them.
Fire Flies began touring up and down the East Coast in their sophmore year playing before classmates and teen centers and headlining in venues they weren't yet old enough to frequent. Now regular attractions on the NYC and East Coast music scene, they will make their national touring debut later this summer.
