The last time UK 80s-influenced dance pop band Friendly Fires played in Singapore, it was as opening act for Faithless. This time, the band returns to perform a full set on Friday, 16th March at Avalon. To these ears, the band really reminds me of the fag end of the 80s electronic movement when synth-pop totally dominated the UK charts. I’ll leave it to you whether I think that was a good thing or not. In any case, Friendly Fires is certainly a buzz band at the moment and at least the rhythmic patterns of its songs do extend beyond the ubiquitous disco beat that too many young indie dance bands rely on nowadays.
