The Hertfordshire indie-dance trio of Ed Mcfarlane, Jack Savidge and Edd Gibson are currently in the middle of recording the follow-up to their Brit and Mercury Prize-nominated eponymous debut album and are determined to avoid what they view as the pratfall of shabby, lo-fi meanderings they say have affected the Brooklyn-based psychedelic pop duo's second release, 'Congratulations.'
Speaking to the Daily Record, Gibson said, "I really hope we are not going to do what MGMT did. Whatever it is they have done, we want to steer well clear of it. I don't understand why they would make such a leap, go from great pop songs to just any old acoustic music played in anyone's bedroom."
Fans will be able to judge for themselves as Friendly Fires have promised to air new material at the RockNess festival in Scotland next month.
Gibson said, "We will definitely air at least one new song at RockNess. Maybe more. We have finished four songs completely and we are really pleased with them, they're better than the first record for sure."
