Tell us a bit about yourself?

We are Fire on the Roof, formed in Cardiff in 2017. Our influences are everything from Hendrix through to the Arctic Monkeys, but we are riding a bit of a Funk Rock vibe at the moment. Think Reef and RHCP.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest?

We have been told we have a bit of an old school style apparently, and we can see what people mean with that. We are a very high energy bunch and tons of fun. This comes out on stage and people love it. We look pretty casual until the first 4-count, so its always great to see surprised faces when we kick off!

What’s your back-story?

Our backstory is everything! We got together through social media, and after a couple of gigs smashing covers with no name we were in a real rut for a project title..... and this seemed to last forever to be honest! However we were rehearsing above a fried chicken shop one night when suddenly all the power was cut. We opened the door to see Darth Vader walking up the stairs screaming that there was a "Fire on the Roof" and we had to get out. It was a false alarm and this misunderstanding with the Cardiff Fire Brigade, was taken as a sign from above - and we never looked back.

What are you working on at the moment?

We are currently working getting our music as far and as wide as possible; we are venturing up north in 2018 with gigs booked in from Leeds to Liverpool. We have a big back catalogue of tracks ready to record, and we are hoping to punch out a new EP early in the new year!
