Deli Premiere: Flight of Fire Release New Video for "One More Sip"

 Fresh off of their win at The New England Music Awards (Best in State-Massachusetts), Boston rockers, Flight of Fire continue to take the NE music scene by force.  They have arrived, armed to the teeth with their album Path of the Phoenix, a 7-song concept album that spins a tale about "the treacherous journey of doing whatever it takes to follow your own truth".  Their latest single and video for "One More Sip" (filmed at Hard Rock Boston), showcases one of the more blistering cuts on the album, while giving the viewer a taste of their high energy live set.  Screaming guitars, grueling riffs, and powerhouse vocals abound as the all-female quartet take on Boston and beyond.  Check them out at House of Blues Foundation Room on 5/12 with blindspot, Katey and the Illicit, and Wonder City.  You can also catch them at the Mill City Ballroom on 5/18 as part of The Break Into Action Tour. -Brian Varneke

Boston indie rock trio blindspot plays at Great Scott on 12.20

The soaring rock songs of Boston trio blindspot are serious yet warm. Enlivened by frontwoman Alexa Economou's Nicks-like voice, such drum-pounced tracks as "I Won't Let Your Heart Break" (streaming below) and "Lay Me Down" uplift even as they stir, seeking happiness while still considering such hardships as disappointment and heartbreak. Pleasantly, though, the 2012-formed group portrays the inherent messiness of life with elegance, moving the listener while expressing what he/she sometimes struggles to. Blindspot plays at Great Scott in Allston, MA on 12.20. - Zach Weg
