Music Spotlight : I Fight Dragons


I Fight Dragons are new to the scene of game inspired music or chiptune. They appeared in Chicago, in 2009 after they formed in late 2008 with their debut EP, Cool Is Just A Number. Yes, I did say game inspired music and they do produce a lot of game inspired music to make your taste buds tingle. (Get it... Tingle from Zelda?) A lot of the songs have sounds from the NES games from when the band were younger. The other tool that they use are video game 'soundcards' such as the Nintendo Gameboy. They are a rare breed of nerd rock and alternative rock which gives them a wide range of fans.

On the 6th of September 2011, their Single, 'The Geeks Will Inherit the Earth' shot them into public domain. This was the song that got me and Lewis into them. (But I wrote the article before he even got a chance!)



The song has won over the hearts of the nerd audience due to the song's lyrics about uniting the nerds together and making them proud to like what they like! And when I say nerds, I guess this does include real nerds and hipster nerds (aka copycats). But the name of the song is not a statement it's fact!


After the release of their single they released their new debut album, 'KABOOM!'. It is available on iTunes but also off there site store.ifightdragons.com in digital copy and standard CD but you can get a Deluxe and Premium Pack as well. So I recommend you buy this as it has become a part of my life for the last month. But the song I do recommend is 'Save World Get Girl'.
