Hallelujah! After all this decidedly snoozy partying, praise the Lord for Friendly Fires, for they truly do have the whole best-night-of-your-life spiel down pat. And, by crivens, they know what doth make a killer single: a stonkingly stupendous chorus. In this case, it’s one that’s a glossy’n’gleaming Technicolor dream so lurid that, with any luck, you’ll be dribbling with euphoria before it’s scarcely taken off.
