I have already written about the new Friendly Fires stuff here and ‘Hawaiian Air’ is the best possible teaser for the album, out in Ireland next Friday. Think of it as an update to the Venga Boys’ ‘We’re Going To Ibiza’. Friendly Fires are going on a trip to “another clime” (Honduras, apparently) and watch “films with a talking dog” on the plane over. The lyrics continue on a similarly stupid level, but when the music is that good, it doesn’t really matter. Drowned in Sound like it too.

Pala is out next Friday.

Update: Check out ‘Blue Cassette’, which you can download for free for the price of an email address. It’s just as summery as ‘Hawaiian Air’, and premiered on Hype Machine today.
