Released: September 2008
Before their obsessions with carnival rhythms and cowbells really took off, Friendly Fires had this 2007 single to propel them skywards. What's it about? Well, basically, moving to Paris and going clubbing forever. It's that simple. But more than anything, it proved that guitar bands in the noughties could 'do dance' credibly (or should that be the other way round?). The song's second half is bolstered by an ethereal, almost overpowering keyboard sample from 'Sun And Ice' by Swedish techno god The Field (which itself was taken nearly wholesale from prog behemoths The Alan Parsons Project's 1977 track 'Nucleus'), while extra vocals are provided by Au Revoir Simone.
