Within the opening bars of SWMRS second LP comes a sea change. You think you’re in familiar rock territory with the Oakland-formed quartet when suddenly an electronic beat kicks in that throws you for a loop. The same thing happens throughout the ten tracks that make up Berkeley’s On Fire – the band’s most urgent, electrifying and groundbreaking record to date. “We always talk about how to make something brand new within the genre of rock,” says co-frontman and songwriter Cole Becker. Cole and bandmates Max Becker (guitar, vocals), Joey Armstrong (drums), and Seb Mueller (bass) spent months deconstructing themselves, their favorite records, and their own process to make this album. From the scraps of what they left behind, a new sound emerged.
