The Spitfires new single “4 AM” is a little different than your average song these days. The song starts right off with the hook, which instantly grabs my attention. The I realize, the whole song is a hook! How rare is that? Billy Sullivan’s guitar and vocals meld perfectly well with Chris Chanell’s atmospheric keys and the song is rounded off with Sam Long’s soaring basslines and Matt Johnson’s racus drums.
The video was shot by Darlin’ Productions and they did a pro job. They really captured the essence of the song, which is about retrospection. Check the video out above and tell everyone you found your new favorite artist.

About The Spitfires:
Formed in September 2012 by Sullivan (vocals, guitar) who recruited Sam Long (bass) and Matt Johnson (drums) to the cause, the band spent their first two years as a trio before augmenting their sound with the addition of Chris Chanell (keyboard, vocals). Their last single ‘Stand Down’ sold out in two days, but there’s no need for hype or “next big thing” tags here; just building a fan base the old fashioned way, via a strong work ethic and touring their arses off – that spirit and attitude is alive and kicking with The Spitfires.
Their energetic and powerful live performances have already seen them play over 200 shows and with their growing fan base and reputation it’s no surprise that the band came to the attention of Paul Weller and The Specials who both personally invited them along for support slots in recent months. The band have also been part of advertising campaigns for clothing companies including internationally renowned brands like Merc, Baracuta and Dr Martens and have already racked up radio support at BBC6 Music, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing and a host of other digital stations.
