Today’s song is “Hey Kate!” by The Fire Apes. This song is off the band’s newest album A Life In Letters which was released on May 23rd. The Fire Apes are fronted by lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist, John Seymour, who often writes metaphorically about love and relationships using literary references, musically framed with melodic hooks.
His music and words can elicit feelings that range from joy and happiness to commiseration and longing.
He credits The Beatles, Oasis, Green Day, The Pretenders and Fountains of Wayne as strong influences. “Hey Kate!” is a stand-out track and the band has a sort of modern Weezer/Oasis type of sound. The Fire Apes will be touring in support of A Life in Letters this summer.
