Without a doubt, Pala, the sophomore album from Friendly Fires was one of our most anticipated albums of 2011. By now, you would have already heard first single and opening track ‘Live Those Days Tonight’. More recently, ‘Blue Cassette’ and ‘Hawaiian Air’ were released for our aural pleasure. The vibes their tracks give off somehow manages to make the weather seem better than it actually is, a talent if there ever was one.
Break out your best Hawaiian shirt because The Hype Machine have been ever so kind and allowed us to listen to the entire album for free!
Pala is due out on May 16 via XL Recordings.
