The Domino State- Firefly

Single Review by Gordon Bruce | 13 Jul 2009
  • The Domino State- Firefly
Single title: Firefly
Artist: The Domino State
Label: Popfiction
Release date: 13 Jul

It’s a well known but perhaps unspoken rule that to plagiarise U2 will not make you popular with the critical press but may sell you a few records. The Domino State will be aware of this, but have still decided to churn out Firefly, a slow-burning epic from start to finish that goes absolutely nowhere. Amongst all the reverb, the lead singer is singing something about how much he loves someone else, and it all sounds like it's been done a trillion times before. Sorry lads, but it's just not on.
