They don’t come much tighter than this Toronto-based quintet. Listening to Words Like Wildfire’s debut EP, Quarter Life Crisis, the first band that comes to mind is Southern Ontario’s Alexisonfire – a warranted comparison, given the fact that both acts employ aspects of different styles of music, from punk to heavy metal to screamo, but are largely driven by melodic guitar and vocal lines that guide the songs. The band, which only formed in 2016, is fresh from a performance at the Toronto date of this year’s Warped Tour and is earning plenty of deserved attention with hooky songs that will get stuck in your head for days.
