If you’ve been anxiously awaiting new Friendly Fires like we have, then the announcement of this brand new collaboration with Toronto house favorite Azari & Ill is like a garbage can full of avocado peels to your inner dog (personal reference, sorry). “Stay Here” appears on Friendly Fires’ Bugged Out mix on Rough Trade (9/27) and is described by Jack Savidge in the band’s newsletter as “in a Wild Pitch house style, so set the controls for NY circa Paris Is Burning and vogue your hearts out.” Dudes, we were already vogueing when you said that! The two groups met in Toronto at after party and hit it off, which is good for all of us. Savidge also updated progress of FF’s new album saying, “Salsoul Orchestra meets Tom Tom Club vibes m8.” Okay then!
Friendly Fires and Azari & III, “Stay Here”
