Beach Bunny – “Fire Escape”

Beach Bunny – “Fire Escape”

Yesterday, we published a cover story about the young Chicago rock band Beach Bunny, taking you behind-the-scenes of their sophomore album Emotional Creature. A few months ago, they shared “Oxygen” from it and now they’re back with another new single, “Fire Escape,” which is twangy and high-octane. Band leader Lili Trifilio had this to say in a press release about the album in general:

We are always changing, growing, and adapting – it’s a deeply ingrained part of the human experience. We strive to be stronger, trust we’ll grow smarter, and spend most of our lives reaching for comfort and happiness. Sometimes, life is stagnant, sometimes, life is difficult – but the wonderful part of being human is that we evolve and make the bleak moments beautiful – we find new ways to survive. Humans are emotional creatures and I wanted to capture that with this album in order to show how complex, sometimes tragic, and mostly wonderful the human experience can be.
