This post originally appeared at the awesome There Goes The Fear blog! Now, I’d heard of Friendly Fires before the festival, but didn’t know much about them, and having realised that they played during a lull in the afternoon’s proceedings (and after our little chat with Bloc Party), we decided to check them out - and they were amazing. Playing the vast majority of their debut album (which came out yesterday, 1st September) throughout their set, they slowly drew in more and more people with their Klaxons / Killers hybrid and managed to make everyone dance much more than many of the previous bands on Saturday afternoon. Lead singer Ed Macfarlane danced around the stage like a slightly younger Klaxons, playing disco-rock whilst thrusting ecestatically. “Jump in the Pool” received one of the biggest receptions of the set, as everyone danced like loons, even attracting those of the crowd who were easily old enough to remember rave the first time round, before it even became “nu-rave”.
