What makes Door Too Wide special?

Proper songs, performed properly



Door Too Wide draws on an eclectic range of influences, including hard rock, burlesque, art rock, country, blues and classical. If you like real instruments and classic, analogue sounds, you're going to love Door Too Wide.

Great players

Every contributor to this record is a highly accomplished musician in their own right. The five members of The Firrenes are joined here by string, brass and woodwind players of the highest calibre - present and former members of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Edinburgh Quartet, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and other leading ensembles. Ricky White, a Scottish pedal steel player now based in the 'States, joins us from his studio in Indiana through the miracle of the Internet.

Memorable songs

From their launch in 2016, The Firrenes (the name rhymes with 'beans') have always been driven by a dedication to the songwriter's craft. Some of the songs on Door Too Wide are political. Some are deeply personal. Some are reflective and soulful with shades of Van Morrison. Some pay a debt to Bowie and art rock. Others are just straight-ahead, in-your-face rockers. If you love a good tune, poetic lyrics, your soundtrack rooted in our world and its people, this record is for you.

Proper songs, performed properly.

A brilliant band!

In terms of where we wanted to go, the stylistic mix and the commitment to the musical idea, The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper was certainly a light that guided us.
