The Crossfire – Streetlight Angel

Pete Murphy writes:

Introducing The Crossfire, a rock quintet from Dublin [Seán Buckley on Lead Vocals, Matt Brady on Lead Guitar, Chris Murphy on Rhythm Guitar, Seán Keeley on Bass, and Adam Shanahan on Drums]. Where other acts nowadays shy away from the mainstream, The Crossfire write unashamedly big songs to be played in big places.

They wear their influences firmly on their sleeves… U2, Coldplay, Kings Of Leon, The Killers… and make no secret of their ambition to play the same stages, and to the same size crowds as their heroes. For these guys, indie obscurity is not an option. As they say themselves “There are no gimmicks or fads, just a driving ambition and desire to play these songs to as many as possible.”
