Friendly Fires

Jump In The Pool

Friendly Fires
If ‘On Board’ was the gang-chant of the 18-30 brigade, then their latest package trip is Friendly Fires at a spa – so relaxed they actually decelerate into the chorus. “Breathe in” Ed Number One suggests, working on his hypnotism stage act, by which point we’re already too lost in that all-enveloping swell of harmonies to remember much more, except that we now have a nagging desire to take off our clothes every time someone snaps their fingers.
