Review: "Fire & Smoke" - BEECH LOVE

Everyone has heard the phrase, “two heads are better than one.” This is especially true when it comes to villains, as two of them together have more power and can do more damage. For example, Harley Quinn and the Joker were a force to be reckoned with in Suicide Squad. Additionally, Cinderella's evil stepsisters helped their stepmother make Cinderella’s life miserable. In his defiant alternative pop song, “Fire & Smoke,” BEECH LOVE uses every element to demonstrate a force of supervillain power. The fierce tone and lyrics make it a great new song for your hype-me-up playlist.

One thing I loved about this track was the use of the drums. They were very loud and hard hitting which contributed greatly to the power of the instrumentation. Another detail that I liked was the ticking clock sound in the verses. I interpreted it as illustrating a countdown to destruction. It is all the more fitting because lyrics in the verses talk about the villains apart from one another with lines like, “together we could be more than superhuman.” The clock stops on the lead up to the chorus. In the second verse, for example, it stops on “do you see now, what we could be right now…” After that, the chorus seems to demonstrate an explosion that comes from the two villains working together. Along with the instrumentation, I really liked BEECH LOVE’s voice. It was very theatrical and sounded like a supervillain.

BEECH LOVE is a singer, songwriter, and producer from San Francisco, California. He was inspired to pursue music after working as a DJ. He draws heavily from the work of popular bands such as The Killers and The Black Keys. If you liked “Fire & Smoke,” then you should listen to his other song, “Rhythm of Violence.” It has a similar loud and defiant tone. BEECH LOVE’s other track, “Alone,” has a lighter sound and the lyrics address the all too relatable experience of a bad breakup.
