Fourth of July is right around the corner, and while it’s our American duty to never tell you how to live your life, we are eager to soundtrack your holiday fling with the upmost of summer jams. The latest entry comes from resurrected British dance party machine Friendly Fires, who follow up a vibrant pair of 2018 singles with a flashy spin around your mind’s tropics called “Silhouettes.” Included in the release is word of Inflorescent, the band’s first new album in eight years. It arrives August 16 via Polydor, and the Fires celebrate with a handful of stateside shows in the fall. Peep the dates after the Spotify jump, and gaze those eyes on the lovely Inflorescent album artwork below.
