Best of all though, as of today the first track to be made available from Pala was put up on XL Recordings' YouTube channel. The track, called Live Those Days Tonight is a joyous little indie-dance number, complete with a strong bouncy beat, quick scattergun synths and enough hooks in the vocal track to keep you coming back for more.
On this evidence Pala is certainly shaping up to be another 'soundtrack to the summer' type release from Friendly Fires. Just think, Live Those Days Tonight sounds great on a crisp, bright spring day like today, it could be absolutely epic come festival season when that sun has some real warmth to it. Roll on the summer.
