Henry Clay People's "California Wildfire"

The song is explosive and played with a ferocious appetite of guitars and thumping drums, even some nice keyboard, shout-out vocals and all kinds of unexpected electronic swirly, squeaky noises. ‘California Wildfire’ is, as expected, about a voracious fire and the tune certainly moves by a series of twisters going as fast as the Californian hills can get burn at the end of the summer; and it sounds as sharp as classic rock with a sort of twist.

I’m certainly late on this, because the local press has been raving about The Henry Clay People for a while now. They played Coachella last April, and I read they closed their set by covering Springsteen’s ‘Born to Run’. It is barely surprising when you listen to this song, they seem to be on the run, an anxious run.

Formed in 2005 by brothers Joey and Andy Siara, The Henry Clay People have already released a few albums and toured the US with Silversun Pickups, Against Me! and Drive-By Truckers.
‘California Wildfire’ by the Henry Clay People is a track off their ‘This is a Desert’ EP, and they offer it for free download in exchange of your email address here:
