"Let's start at the beginning," sings Fireships' Andrew Vladeck at the onset of the band's self-titled debut, from 2015. "Give it all we got!" It's a boundless enthusiasm that bleeds into every corner of the folk-rock collective's music, which, like carefully whittled wooden knickknacks, sounds lovingly hand-crafted. While songs generally evoke a log cabin-intimacy, the lyrics explore bigger themes, with verses that allude to chasing the sun and hitching rides to far-off locales.
