Friendly Fires

So the band called Friendly Fires, that made somewhat of a splash in the blogosphere last year, has come out with their first full length disc. When I first heard the super sexy (but not as sexy as me) song "Paris", and saw the ridiculously absurd video for "On Board", i thought that these guys might have something and i began to eagerly await something a little more substantial than an EP release. Well, I now have something a little more substantial, and what can I say? Well, all of the songs are cut from the same mold, however, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Friendly Fires craft fun songs. They're kind of like The Kooks or The Bravery, mixed with the inane flavors of MGMT. A disco-infused band that can be reminiscent of the Klaxons at times, only less serious. You might want to look ito acquiring their debut disc if you're really into their sound, which unfortunately is one we've all heard many, many times before.
