Taken off his upcoming album Kick, out on 12 April 2019.
Acclaimed Philadelphia-raised singer-songwriter Dave Hause has released new single, Fireflies. The single is taken from his forthcoming studio album titled Kick. As a soft and touching track from the upcoming collection, Fireflies is an ode to youth, a simpler time and summer on the east coast.
The album Kick is out on 12 April via Rise Records and is Hause’s fourth solo outing that finds him carrying on in the voice and tradition of classic American songwriters, tackling topics of hope, depression, global warming, a crumbling democracy, and growing old. These complex notions weave together with a joyous sing-along cadence that creates a soundtrack for the broken American dream.
Kick doesn’t sugarcoat either the personal problems or the global challenges at its center. At the core of this record there remains a vivid humanity and a hope that things can – and will – get better, even if it seems like the odds are stacked against us. When the only alternative is to drown, the first step towards survival is to kick. “There is comfort in desperation when you know that other people experience it too, and together you can both sing it and sing through it,“ Hause continues. ”As I listen back, I hope the album offers more comfort than desperation. I hope we got that balance right.”
