When you’re playing a game of Mario (pick one, any time period, as this analogy is going to be same regardless) and you headbutt an iconic golden question mark to unearth one of the game’s fire flowers, the immediate reaction is a pretty universal one: take me to all the Goombas, because I’m going to seriously fuck them up with all the digital brimstone my upgraded plumber can muster.
That is, until a Lakitu ruins your day, shrinking your man to Danny Devito-like proportions.
The immediate power surge that takes place when you score a Mario fire flower isn’t so far away from the feeling that Italian duo Fire Flowerz captures in its tracks. They certainly aren’t ones for subtlety, electing to not use drawn-out swells to get to the point. Within a few seconds of any given Fire Flowerz track, you’re dancing at your cubicle and your co-workers are wondering what the hell’s wrong with you.
