Brandi & The Alexanders announce EP; share lead single ‘Fire’

NYC-based genre-bending soul-rock 5-piece Brandi & The Alexanders announce their next EP, Reflection (slated for a September 2 release) and share lead single ‘Fire’: a high-energy funk-meets-blues-meets-rock-n-roll anthem. On their latest offering, Brandi Thompson’s vocals are showstopping.

On the story behind the song, lead singer Brandi Thompson shares: “The spring of 2020, a second Civil Rights Movement overwhelmed the United states. I was as swept up in the movement as anyone, but I decided to write a song to not just stand against the brutality that was happening that spring, but to remind my listeners that this brutality and discrimination is not new; my ancestors survived similar brutality and discrimination – like that which we saw in 2020 and the many years prior – for centuries. I’m proud to be a product of the ancestors who survived generation after generation; their strength is my strength, and I wrote this song to honor them. As the saying goes, I am my ancestors’ wildest dreams. Theirs are the shoulders on which I stand and which have gotten me where I am today.”
