ALBUM REVIEW: Friendly Fires – Inflorescent. The Trio’s Four-Decade Dancefloor Homage Reinstalls Solid Roots In The Ground

Friendly Fires have come a long way from the heady days when their self-titled debut burst out of the late-noughties scene, amongst the wreckage of nu-rave, nu-gaze and other fads long-since left redundant; a distant time when people seemed to have nothing better to do than care about The Klaxons, even encouraging them with a Continue Reading
