Friendly Fires

In Music on November 5, 2008 at 9:25 am

Dubbed the “closest contender to an overwhelming buzz band” at the CMJ Music Marathon , Friendly Fires played 5 gigs in 4 days during the marathon madness.  The UK based band mixes up sounds from the 70’s and 80’s that give them a post punk feel to their sound.  It’s like disco, meets 80’s pop, meets indie rock, meets electronic.  In other words their music is magical.  

Friendly Fires finished out the rest of October opening up for Lykke Li.  Come November you can find them across the waters as they continue their tour in Europe with theFoals.  You can also check out their latest album, “Friendly Fires” which was released this past September, 2008.
