''Sonically, Love & Fire is a breezy breath of fresh air. Lyrically, the Kiwis manage to gracefully pair the embodiment of true easy-listening with deep and complex emotions and ideations that make you go, “…damn”. Internal conflict, like in “Let The Sunshine Through” and unrequited love, like in the album’s namesake track “Love & Fire”, hit right in the feels and display the band’s profound breadth of songwriting skills. Don’t be afraid to dance, though — these tracks all but beg for it.
“Love & Fire” is a passionate song, encompassing the burning embers of lust “that are never going to cool right down”, as lead vocalist Barnaby Weir croons. The coy invitation from Weir “if you want to feel my love // then reach out and touch my fire” examines unspoken attraction through the male lens and throws the ball into the female court. The chorus, punctuated with dazzling horns, promises an earworm and the inevitable subsequent shower performance.
The album’s track “Game Over” is a classic reggae sound that utilizes muted guitar riffs, a dubby bassline and an infectious horn section to showcase the band’s iconic and memorable sound. Tackling challenging themes of domestic life and parenting, vocalist Barnaby Weir says, “The lyrical content of this song describes some of the challenges and feelings of life as a musician and a parent in this world.” He continues, “It’s about the struggle to be the best you can be while maintaining relationships and careers — as well as feeling like you’re achieving something. It’s definitely a feeling we all have at times.” '' (TopShelfMusicMag)
