SONG REVIEW: Hearts Under Fire, We’ve Come Too Far To Live In The Past

TITLE: We’ve Come Too Far To Live In The Past
BAND: Hearts Under Fire
LABEL: Unsigned
RELEASED: June 1st 2012

These girls supported MEST at Whatever Happened to P-Rock? and after posting my review of the gig on both Facebook and Tumblr, I thought it would be only fair if I reviewed one of their songs as a thank you for helping to raise the numbers of viewers to my blog!


We’ve Come Too Far is a classic alternative rock track and got everyone jumping at Rhythm Factory at the beginning of the month. It’s a track with a lot of heart and the passion and grit in Mary’s lead vocals is something that can’t go unnoticed. The aggressive guitar and slamming drums mirror the band’s feisty nature and tell us that these girls are here to kick some ass.

The lyrics are essentially about living for today, being proud of what you’ve achieved and not having too many regrets, which is a message we can definitely take away and learn from. It also celebrates the band’s successes to date, as the video showcases perfectly.

It’s a song that’s ideal for just laying in your room and blocking out the world or blasting it out of the car stereo would be just as therapeutic. One thing I love about the song is that the backing vocals really add to it and in fact, highlights the level of female friendship within the band. The song has a lot of light and shade, which I imagine reflects the girls’ journey to success. It charts their progress and they’re now pretty much on the edge of glory. All that matters is now and what comes next. The song will be the lead track from their new EP of the same name, which is released this summer.

    Hi Alex
    thank you so much for another excellent review.
    Few quick notes. We’re no longer with mmc. This current EP Will be an unsigned self release. Also we’ve had to push back to release date of the EP due to administrative reasons. Hopefully should be along soon.
    Thank you so much for your kind words.
    We’ll re-post your blog after we play our show at the barfly tonight.
