Friendly Fires

The Glass House

In their short career, Friendly Fires have done for disco what Vampire Weekend did for Afrobeat: graft it to appealing guitar pop and inspire suburban youths around the world to flail their limbs in clean-cut rapture. This isn’t dance punk or some other hipster permutation, though. It’s pure and reverent, more Bee Gees than DFA.
