Friendly Fires announce debut album details
- Friendly Fries »
St Albans trio Friendly Fires - DiScovered here - have announced their self-titled debut album will be released on September 1.
Okay, they didn't announce anything - their label, XL, did. Of the album, the three-piece says:
“These 37 minutes of music is the end product of two years’ inspiration, frustration, toil and passion. We set out to merge heartfelt, romantic songwriting with our love of the dancefloor and blissful shoegaze guitars.”
Expect nods to German techno label Kompakt, drums that tickle like Liquid Liquid and drone right out of the MBV songbook. And that single...
