To be perfectly honest, when they began touring, Friendly Fires were seriously concerned that you Americans were gonna be a standoff-ish, pretentious lot. Happily, they were wrong. In their quest to transport listeners to another world, the British electro wiz kids have danced for plenty of crowds. And America’s never hesitated to join in.
Produced completely in their garage, Friendly Fires’ self-titled debut is a burbling escapist fantasy. The sort of thing that inspires three grown Brits to undulate like samba dancers on a nightly basis.
In the interview below, Friendly Fires give you a feel for where they’re coming from and offers up a free download of their latest single, “Skeleton Boy.” Don’t miss out on this one!
