Friendly Fires played a rooftop gig in London last night (July 14).

The St Albans were poolside at Shoreditch House as they played a short set as part of the Levi's Ones To Watch series of gigs.

Squeezing their way through the crowd of competition winners who packed out the club's top deck, the band performed a selection of songs from their debut album, plus brand new single 'Kiss Of Life', which is released on August 31.

The set also included 'Jump In The Pool', but although Friendly Fires performed close to the club's rooftop open air pool, lashing rain meant no one took them up on the offer.

Friendly Fires played:

'Lovesick'
'Jump In The Pool'
'Skeleton Boy'
'In The Hospital'
'White Diamonds'
'Kiss Of Life'
'Paris'
'On Board'
'Ex Lover'


The band are now set to play the London Roundhouse tonight (July 15) as part of the iTunes Live Festival. They will also play a homecoming gig at the St Albans Arena on September 3.
