#75 – Friendly Fires

They’ve got a new album due out in just over a week and, judging by these two songs, it’s going to be every bit as dancy and high tempo as their first eponymous release was. The first of these two songs is ‘Live Those Days Tonight’, an ambitious, wild-sounding song that makes great use of the urgent percussion that I enjoyed so much on Friendly Fires. Sadly it’s only a radio rip, but it does give you a good idea of what to expect.

The second song is called ‘Hawaiian Air’ and still maintains the super-high energy of ‘Live Those Days Tonight’. It does sound like a better song, although I haven’t listened to it all that many times. From the first couple of listens it sounds a little more developed and more of an all-round song, rather than a tune for the indie-clubs (not that it won’t get some heavy rotation at them!). It is a bigger song and I’m hoping that’s something they’ll be able to put across on the live shows, which start tomorrow at Heaven in London. If you miss the few UK dates then fear not, they’ll be doing the rounds at the festivals this summer too.

Finally, you can go and download the newest song off the album by simply going to their website and putting in your email address. It sounds something like this…

  1. People who have had children when they were young or before they planned to will relate to this song. It is about someone that hears a song that takes them back to things in the past. This is a really fun song…..The Woman With You is a song that women will relate to.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my users would definitely benefit from some of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Appreciate it!
