These boys known as Friendly Fires met in school and formed a band at a fine young age of 14.
Back then, they used to be a post-hardcore outfit.
They have grown and matured over the years, progressing to the sounds of today..which is essentially a good mix of everything.
They are inspired by pop, lush shoegaze melodies, disco house and dance.
MP3s after the jump.
Thinking about it, it is getting increasingly difficult to classify bands under genres, even though more than 90% of music on commercial free to air radio can just be classified as trash.
It is a music store’s nightmare, but a music lovers dream.
Friendly Fires defies that commercial trash. Coming up with a sound unique and fresh they can call their own.
‘Paris‘ is an incredibly easy track to listen to with the dance vibes and hooks you into listening to it in its entirety.
The Aeroplane remix of ‘Paris’ featuring Au Revoir Simone is really something to behold i assure you and will be etched in our minds for years to come.
They are signed to XL Recordings in the UK as part of their insane stable of artistes. (MIA, Vampire Weekend, Beck, Sigur Ros)
One day, we’re gonna live in Paris, I promise.
