Pitchfork

Hailing from St. Albans, an English commuter city known musically for producing the Zombies, Friendly Fires arrive on the heels of the British indie-dance zeitgeist helmed by the Klaxons and New Young Pony Club. Although their self-titled debut has the immediacy and hard hooks that riddle so much of this genre, Friendly Fires show an amplified, ambitious, and inventive attention to detail that helps steer them away from sounding like just another polished party band.

I liked this album a lot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Indietronica and Alternative Dance are not genres I’m familiar with at all, this is probably the first time I’ve ever seen those genres, but I really enjoyed this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even though this album can be really forgettable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still liked it though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
