Friendly Fires - Love Like Waves

Welcome back Friendly Fires, the dancefloor is once again yours.
Friendly Fires - Love Like Waves

Welcome back Friendly Fires, the dancefloor is once again yours.

Banger




Friendly Fires have finally returned. All is right with the world. ‘Love Like Waves’ is fresh, vibrant and buzzing with the kinetic energy that became the band's trademark. Even after years away, they haven't missed a step.

Featuring an electronic tapestry of buzzing synthesisers and bubbling rhythms it’s immaculately built and layered for maximum pleasure. Vocalist Ed Macfarlane’s hip shaking dance moves, one of Friendly Fires' trademark calling cards, are almost audible, a touch of extra thrust thrown in for good measure.

Crafted and developed over time in the studio, Friendly Fires don’t do anything by halves. The years spent honing their skills for a new era seem to have paid off. It’s a track that feels like a new beginning with all the echoes of a glorious past.

Friendly Fires have always known their way around a hook and ‘Love Like Waves’ is chocked full of them. Welcome back Friendly Fires, the dancefloor is once again yours. Martyn Young
