Band talk new material

With the impact from their debut album still ringing in our ears, Friendly Fires are set to begin work on their new album soon, ClashMusic can exclusively reveal.

The band burst onto the music scene with their one off single on Moshi Moshi. 'Paris' was a sensation, uniting dance and rock influences almost effortlessly.

Signing to XL, Friendly Fires began work on their debut album. Still touring that material, the band have begun to look to the future and have been experimenting with new sounds based on the golden era of house music.

Speaking to exclusively to ClashMusic Jack Savidge said "we've got some ideas knocking around, that we came up with back in January. Hopefully we're going to get back on it in between Europe and America.

"We've got about a week, so hopefully we'll have something finished, but you can never really predict these things!".

Probed on the band's dance influences, they confirmed these themes would continue on the new album. "The stuff we've done so far sounds typically euphoric, and it continues in that vein. We find it hard to make music that people can't dance to, because it seems to be hard-wired into us!"

Savidge also discussed the band's rise to fame, and the pressures their success has brought.

Look out for the full interview on ClashMusic shortly.
