The kings of atmospheric Art Rock return with 2020’s Fireworker. Amongst Gazpacho‘‘s greatest achievements, conceptually, the album follows the band’s tradition of blending grand philosophical quandaries, stimulating literary leanings, and haunting personal turmoil. A culmination of the themes and techniques from earlier collections, Fireworker combines the fatalistic isolation of Night and Missa Atropos, the ill-fated narrative drama of Tick Tock and Soyuz, and the hefty theological/scientific contemplations of Demon and Molok. Beyond that, its central premise (that humanity has always been controlled by an infallible and omniscient creature determined to propagate at any cost) means that Fireworker comes across like the overarching umbrella under which all its predecessors occur. Keyboardist Thomas Andersen elucidates: “There’s an instinctual part of you that lives inside your mind, separate from your consciousness. I call it the ‘Fireworker’ or the ‘Lizard’ or the ‘Space Cowboy.’ It’s an eternal and unbroken lifeforce that’s survived every generation, with a new version in each of us."
