frien pala cover Check Out: Friendly Fires   Hawaiian Air

“If you will it, dude, it is no dream.” Finding the strength to muddle through a Chicago winter is no small feat, but oh brother is it easier when you get some help from a warm song. Friendly Fires, UK’s nu-disco export, drops some sunscreen all over the speakers with the track “Hawaiian Air”, from their forthcoming LP Pala. Arena-electro like this instills the feeling of festival, of belting the chorus, hands in the air, feeling things. Just will this energy into your life, and you’ll be feeling the summer, and really feeling this song. Check it out below (via SKoA).

When the time comes, you can check out Friendly fires this summer when their tour hits clubs and festivals all over the US and the world. It’ll kick off just after Pala drops in the states on May 24th via XL Recordings.
