Kirty Announces We Are All On Fire LP Out August 20 via Postwar Records

Toronto-based songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and long-time Fast Romantics member Kirty announces her new solo album We Are All On Fire will be released on August 20, 2021 via Postwar Records.

Alongside the album announcement, the captivating songstress releases a dreamy new track off of her forthcoming solo LP, “Turn You On” and its grotesquely dark and comedic accompanying video, which is premiering via Exclaim!. Says Kirty of the new single, “Turn you on” — a deceiving song title considering this has nothing to do with sex. I wrote these lyrics in a stream-of-consciousness-state one day as I was thinking about the peaks and valleys of trying to make something of yourself in the music business. The good, the bad, and the ugly.”

Conceptualized and shot by director Anne Douris and featuring award-winning Canadian actor and comedian Chris Locke (Baroness Von Sketch Show, Mr. D), the video for “Turn You On” is full of fun, creepy weirdness, and sees Kirty literally consumed by a hedonistic bourgeois. “It’s about feeling consumed, overwhelmed, overworked, and overly digested, and Anne’s concept and treatment matches that sentiment in a splendidly gory way,” shares Kirty.

“Turn You On” follows the poignant, grungy, distortion-rich single, “God Help Us” and the melancholy early 90s-inspired track “This Year’s Been Hell”. The singles found support on marquee playlists like Spotify’s New Music Friday Canada, Indie Playlist BIRP! and Indie to go and garnered praise from outlets like Ottawa Life, Exclaim!, Spill Magazine, Dusty Organ and ET Canada who dubbed Kirty “the coolest woman in the province.”
