Stealing Spitfires is a band that delivers high-energy pop-rock very much of our time and with lyrics that state a firm point of view. On “Life Is” the UK-based band’s confident lead vocalist gives fervent advice on living a purposeful existence. The band moves unexpectedly in a prog-rock direction on “Popcorn,” a darker number that culminates in an extended instrumental coda (which we wish packed more punch at the end). Best of all is the supercatchy “Coming Out,” a hit single if we ever heard one. This simple guitar-driven ditty is propelled by a lead vocal that invites the listener to take decisive action: “Are You Coming Out?” The song’s message is debatable; its appeal is undeniable.
