In the latest release off their upcoming full-length, Searching for the Dawn, Charlotte, NC trio Sparkman have released “Fireworks,” an irresistibly infectious tune that’s ripe with summer vibes and beachy harmonies.
Speaking about the song, Chris Vercauteren says in addition to being all about the search for a meaningful life, it’s “a commentary on the human condition, particularly in the US. The second verse outlines how we all have dreams, yet we have no idea how to achieve them. Instead of pushing our own personal boundaries to get there, 99% of us will stick to the path that’s outlined for us and never go for anything. This song is about striving to be the 1%. It’s about having faith in something greater than yourself, and trusting that your loved ones will get you there.”
You can catch the band at their September 8th release show in Charlotte, NC at The Evening Muse.
