“When A Fire Starts To Burn” is the anthmeic dance song that is the opening track on Disclosure’s fantastic debut album, Settle. Disclosure is brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence from Surrey, England. At ages 19 and 22, the Lawrence siblings make exuberant electronica music with influences of house, garage, two-step, and pop music. They debuted in August, 2010, and have released several singles all achieving great chart success in the UK. With the release of Settle in the States, the band has already grabbed the attention of electronica music fans and the critics. Pitchfork recently crowned the record with a 9.1 (out of 10) Best New Music, and while the band isn’t carving out any new musical ground within the genre, they bring a pop songwriting mindedness to the fore with exciting and accessible results. Below, listen to “When A Fire Starts To Burn,” and watch the spirited video for the song.
