Got the album shortly after I made that previous post back in February. It's a great album.

Anyone else heard the new album yet? It's sitting pretty at a 3.5/5 for me right now. A rather dull middle section, but when the album's tempo is up, it's a great listen. I'll probably higher the score after a few more listens, the slower/groovier numbers just didn't do it for me while I was out for a walk.

Definitely pleased with the new one though, not a huge departure, and just enough different from Cut Copy to still have a unique sound.

I have tickets to see them in a couple weeks, but I don't have the new album, yet. I'd better get on that.

I LOVE their debut though! And they were FANTASTIC the first time I saw them in concert!

YouTube - ‪Friendly Fires - Blue Cassette‬‏

^ I think I heard that on radio today. If that's the best, I may give it a miss... wasn't a big fan. They had a song out a couple of years ago that I loved. There's soooo much of this music around at the moment, it's very overwhelming and I'm finding a lot of them can be quite similar, in that they're good, but don't have enough in them to keep me coming back.

"Live Those Days Tonight" is the first single. I liked that song, but it reminded me a LOT of what you're saying. "Blue Cassette" is much better and more Friendly Firesesque.

They sound nothing like the Killers, but the lead singer clearly wants to be Brandon Flowers live, and that is a great thing.

Really gotta get myself a copy of Pala, the debut was sheer brilliance. Paris, Pool, Lovesick were great!! Was shattered when they had to pull out of Good Vibes last year, but may check them out at the Splendour sideshow. Top band.

Hmmm...I guess I haven't being paying attention. I didn't realize they had a new album out. I really liked the first one, so I'll have to get a listen in.
