Friendly Fires could release new music under a different name due to the direction their material is moving in, according to the band’s frontman Ed MacFarlane.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, MacFarlane described their new material as not sounding like anything the group have produced to date, meaning they could be unleashed on the general public under a new banner at some stage in the future.
“We’ve been working on eight-minute long tracks that don’t sound anything like what we do now,” he said. “The music is what it’s all about for us so if it means we release under a different name then that’s fine.”
Friendly Fires released their second album ‘Pala‘ in May 2011 which, backed by a series of radio hits in Britain, peaked at #6 on the UK Album Chart. One of those singles, ‘Hawaiian Air’, was included in Live4ever’s Essential Listening retrospective at the end of last year, and was described as “a somewhat hilarious, fun song that is accompanied by an equally blithesome video with the theme of ‘bonkers flight’.”
