An introduction to the universe of Fireflies music - we would like to present some of the feelings that his music evokes: Autumn turns into winter, A landscape soon to be dressed in white, Evenings in front of a warm fireplace, Longings for that someone special, Longings for that place where you for once can feel perfectly at home... Lisle Mitnik, the person behind Fireflies, describes his own creations in this way: "I grew up in the tundras of New England playing classical piano and one day I moved to California to go to school and decided to start writing songs. I bought a portastudio and started recording, combining my love for lo-fi indie recordings of the 1980s and 90s with my unrefined knowledge of classical arrangement. I try to craft each song into a tiny snow-globe-sized universe you can curl up in and get lost for a little while." The descriptions above are some of the ones we feel are closely connected to Fireflies music. In time our feelings might change, but for now we just want to hurl up in his snow-globe-sized universe and get lost for a little while.
