Firestations are Mike Cranny, Laura Copsey, Martin Thompson, Giles Littleford and Tom Hargreaves. They write lyrical alt-pop songs filtered through joyous surges of collective noise-making and bursts of electronic sound from synths and guitars. They released their acclaimed debut album Never Closer at the end of 2014. After much gigging to support it, including festival outings to Indietracks, Aaaahfest in Germany and Indiefjord in Norway, they hunkered down to record a follow-up.

On The Year Dot, Firestations have refined and expanded on their shared obsession – sketching simple pop songs then painting over them with drones, vocal harmonies, electronica and unusual rhythms. Much as The Year Dot is a true DIY effort in its creation – made over the best part of three years in a small home studio in Walthamstow, the north circular hissing in the near distance ­– it’s by no means a lo-fi album.

“We spent a lot of time obsessing over making it a really absorbing listen” says Mike, “it’s a distillation of dreaming away the days on the outskirts, flickering between dead-end admin jobs, depression, writing lyrics on my phone, running through local woods, recording drums in industrial units, periods of hopelessness and moments of joy.”

For a limited time, we're making the album available to purchase with an accompanying t-shirt, at a bargain price of £24.99.  Just select the LP + T-SHIRT option, and your size of shirt.  The shirts are Gildan SoftStyle Ring Spun shirts, and come in BLACK, with white print. There's a sizing chart on this page ->
