Friendly Fires is a dancepunk/new wave band which formed in 2006 in St Albans, England. They consist of Ed MacFarlane (vocals), Edd Gibson (guitar) and Jack Savidge (drums). The band released their self-titled debut album on 1 September 2008. It contains the singles ?Paris?, ?Jump in the Pool?, and ?Skeleton Boy?.

Formed out of the ashes of First Day Back, the St Albans, United Kingdomhardcore band they formed while still at school, Friendly Fires make razor-sharp post-punk that burns through the memories of all the dismal, skinny jeaned ?80s revivalists you?ve been hearing these past few years. Sounding brittle, knotty and urgent, Friendly Fires are the real deal. With no fat or padding on them at all, their songs possess an elegant sparseness. As guitarist Edd Gibson notes: ?The hardest thing I think is to know what to leave out, to know when something is enough.? But amongst all the stripped-back twists, there are also moments full of deep, blissed-out melodies. ?I love lush, massive, tingly chords; the My Bloody Valentine sound,? says bassist and singer Ed MacFarlane.
