Formed way back in 2015, this Long Island trio that consists of Phil Firetog as the lead vocalist and guitarist, Johnny “Pots” Potocnik who is the drummer, and Liam Gordon who is the bassist has been on a steady trajectory as far as the music and performances are concerned. Blending intimacy with passion and backing that up with heartwarming performances born from the indestructible connection and chemistry developed among them, Phil Firetog has wowed both fans and critics with the level of stunning ingenuity it brings to the music table. This genre-blending trio has a way with rhythms and melodies that transcend genre boundaries whilst still managing to have a distinct foundation in rock and pop!
They are now back, this time with additional band members Tye Granger and Gabriel Nekrutman, with another ballad dubbed “Fall.” 3 minutes 44 seconds melodically ascending and genre-bending track that is effortlessly likable. Blending luxurious instrumentation, deeply resonant songwriting, and powerful vocal presentation, “Fall” whisks the listener into the rollercoaster of an apprehensive heart!
The tune starts with a soothing and chilled vibe engineered by that haunting acoustic guitar intro and as the track progresses, the band unleashes a timeless medley of dutiful drums, upright bass, and terrain guitar tones with self-assured lead and back vocal harmonies matching the thrill of the fantastical instrumentation that bear strong fixation with rock sensibilities. The integration of the saxophone as the track gains depth adds to the color and sonic variation of this magnificent piece.
Emotionally relatable, the lyrics here tell the musings of a skeptical heart that is afraid to fall in love again and risk being heartbroken even if what is before it feels legitimately unique. The male lead vocals are raw and earnest and appeal to the listener throughout. I have no doubt this track will be appreciated by a wide span of listers, for it has an abundance to offer, right from the splendorous instrumentation down to the near-perfect presentation from the Phil Firetog Trio & Co.
