The Tire Fires (Philip Simondet and Will Roberts) are a (mostly) acoustic rock band with raw, emotional lyrics.
Even their happiest songs are pretty fucking depressing, though often also funny.
"Like John Lennon without the peace" - some drunk guy
"You can’t be too drunk or you think it’s for real depressing but if you’re just the right amount of drunk there are some fun tunes" - some other drunk guy
“Depressing, but honest... and also funny” - some high guy
“Tenacious D meets Green Day” - some sound guy
