"Live Those Days Tonight", the opening track on Friendly Fires'
, is, first and foremost, a lyrically charged ballad. Frontman, Ed MacFarlane proudly admonishes those who scorn modern music. London remixologist, Tim Green, has put the message in the backseat in order to rev up its house beat engines. The radiance of Macfarlane vocals and synth are lost in a void of bass. But its darkness isn't detrimental, especially to those who appreciate the heft of after hours electro.
