The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TAKE CRITICS’ CHOICE -

For fans of post “in­die-land­fill” UK mu­sic, Friendly Fires were one of the good guys. The band had an in­ven­tive­ness that looked like in­die on the sur­face but was more in­ter­ested in heart-on-sleeve pop eu­pho­ria. Five years since their sec­ond al­bum, they have re­turned and as­sur­ingly, still sound like them­selves. That means, shim­mer­ing Balearia and sum­mer pop es­capist an­thems. Catch their rays at Elec­tric Pic­nic. NIALL BYRNE
