Belfast four piece The Crossfire Hurricanes are driving their own tanked-up style of blues-infused Indie Rock&Roll, and they rarely take it out of fifth gear. Tearing through live performances, the band mix an on-stage presence of professionalism and spontaneity which exploded them onto the local music scene, and saw them gain immediate popularity through debut gigs in Belfast, Dublin, and London. Their recipe is a cocktail of cool confidence mixed with creative musical agility, and these ingredients manifest themselves in their music; a repertoire of punchy riffs dripping in psychedelic delay effects, and ignited with catchy choruses. This has resulted in plays on BBC Radio, festival bookings including support for The Kooks and The Coronas, and London gigs including the famous Indie venue ‘The Dublin Castle’ in Camden; where Blur, Amy Winehouse, and The Arctic Monkeys honed their craft. The online release of their debut single ‘The Deviant’ made waves throughout the UK and received air play on over 60 Independent radio stations nationwide,
while a live performance of their subsequent single ‘Morning After Showdown’ was used in an advert for Northern Irish Pub of the Year, 'The Goat's Toe'. More currently, the title track of their EP ‘Romancing Revolution’ was chosen by BBC Radio Ulster as Track of the Day, followed by its related music video winning the Belfast Square Short Film Award; cementing the fact that The Crossfire Hurricanes will continue to deliver… and with the release of their new EP ‘Break Through The Sky’ due for release, and a debut album currently in the making, their ambitions will soon be realised.
Whether playing in sweaty clubs or festival tents, The Crossfire Hurricanes have gained a reputation as a fearsome live act with a determination for success. So if you walk past a music venue and you hear raw attitude amplified in a storm of riffs, drum rolls, and punchy vocals… then you know The Crossfire Hurricanes are in town; and they’ll charm you like a new belief.
