FRIENDLY FIRES

Friendly Fires

Pala

    Named after the island in Aldous Huxley's 1962 novel 'Island', "Pala", recorded over the last 12 months in locations across London, St. Albans, Rye, New York and Yvetot, France, has been produced in part by Paul Epworth along with the band. The artwork for the album features a parrot photograph from one of famed fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo's personal projects, while the album also sees musical collaborations with The Harlem Gospel Choir and Holy Ghost's Alex Frankel. The release follows the success of the band's debut album which received two Brit nominations as well as picking up a Mercury Prize nomination.

    Friendly Fires

      Having wowed us with a 45 and a couple of ace 10"s on People In The Sky, Friendly Fires now deliver their full length debut album. Two years in the making, this long player is a heady mixture of dancefloor friendly monsters, amidst beautiful washes of understated lo-fi pop music. The album opens with "Jump In The Pool", a mixture of angular punk-funk jerkiness and big emotion-drenched chorus, while "In The Hospital" mixes post-punk disco with guitar slashes and all sorts of alt-funkiness. "Paris" opens with frenzied percussion before morphing into a sing-along stadium favourite, and "Strobe" pushes the indie envelope further with its jangly guitars before adding a nice dose of sparkling electronics. And so the album continues, blending disco-punk rhythms with an emotional intensity to work both the feet and the brain.
