An Oldie but a goodie- Friendly Fires’ 2011 album Pala is the perfect tonic to get you in the mood. In the mood for what, you might ask? In THE mood. A good mood. My winners on the album are Hurting, Pala and Hawaiian Air, which is one of my favourite songs of all time- and not just because it’s dedicated to my happy place (Hawaii). This song, like majority of their tunes, is dreamy and sun-soaked, melancholy infused optimism. The lead vocalist’s voice is an escapist haven, calming, emotive and velvety.
Friendly Fires’ music sounds like each song has been inspired by a different corner of the world. What they all have in common however, is that blissful summer soundtrack feeling. As a vivacious daydreamer, that certainly works for me. Friendly Fires might just be the Soundtrack for your next daydream.
