Friendly Fires - 'Blue Cassette'

The theme tune to the best night of your life

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.
