Friendly Fires are a Indie dancepunk band formed in 2006 in St Albans, England. They consist of Ed MacFarlane (vocals), Edd Gibson (guitar) and Jack Savidge (drums).

The band released their self-titled debut album on 1 September 2008. It contains the singles “Paris”, “Jump in the Pool”, and “Skeleton Boy”. The band’s second album, “Pala”, was released on 16 May 2011 Formed out of the ashes of First Day Back, the St Albans, United Kingdom hardcore band they formed while still at school, Friendly Fires make razor-sharp post-punk that burns through the memories of all the dismal, skinny jeaned ‘80s revivalists you’ve been hearing these past few years. Sounding brittle, knotty and urgent, Friendly Fires are the real deal. With no fat or padding on them at all, their songs possess an elegant sparseness.

Have a look at their myspace to sample what they have to offer.
