Listen: Friendly Fires return with ‘Love Like Waves’

Friendly Fires return with ‘Love Like Waves’

The band’s first new material since 2011’s ‘Pala’ follows their Brixton Academy show last night.

Friendly Fires made their big live comeback last night, headlining London’s Brixton Academy, and have now shared their brand new single.

‘Love Like Waves’ is the band’s first new material since 2011 LP ‘Pala’, and is as bright, shiny and tropical as we’ve come to expect from the three-piece.

The band are set to follow up the release of the new single with a whole host of live shows, beginning at London’s new All Points East festival in Victoria Park on 27th May, playing alongside the likes of Björk, Father John Misty and Beck.
