Firefighter Font (Alumni)

Like a cornered cat, Firefighter Font is the noise a small band makes when it wants to sound huge. The upstate NY trio combine driving beats, minimal instrumentation, DIY ethos and large-hearted vocals in an effort to scare off predators and move bodies. Sustained by a steady diet of indie rock they’ve drawn comparisons to Spoon, Broken Social Scene and, most often, Sunny Day Real Estate. Their debut album Crash Tender was released in 2010 on Sub-Bombin.
