In April of this year, Friendly Fires returned from a hiatus The trio of Ed Macfarlane, Edd Gibson and Jack Savage announced their comeback with anthemic new single “Love Like Waves”, a Mark Ralph produced track that is both a timely reminder of Friendly Fires’ past successes and a tantalizing taste of an even brighter new era. That same week, Friendly Fires performed their first UK live show since 2012. Over the years, Friendly Fires’ live events – from basement raves and curated club nights to huge shows and festival headline slots, including a sold out appearance at London’s 5000 capacity O2 Academy Brixton.
Today (Wednesday, May 30), Friendly Fires reveal the video for “Love Like Waves.” Directed by Giorgio Testi – famed for his work with the likes of Gorilaz, Savages, Damon Albarn and London Grammar among others – the beautifully shot video was filmed on the island of Favignana earlier this month.
