The Nero crew dropped into BBC Radio 1’s live lounge today and cut what can only be called an EPIC (all caps) session. The electronic act laid down blistering live instrument versions of single “Promises” and a cover of Friendly Fires “Live Those Days Tonight”. Courtesy of our buddy at Details of My Life (great blog you should check out ASAP) you can stream/dl both tracks below.Nero – Promises Live @ BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge Nero – Live Those Days Tonight (Friendly Fires Cover @ Radio 1’s Live Lounge)
Rating 8.3 / 8.5
Pala is album of the year material. The cooled out title track of Friendly Fires new mindblower of a LP just might be our fav song off the record yet. All the best trappings of 80’s 90’s R&B (some of our favorite music) are here and mixed up with the best electronic music those genres influenced and then all tied together with the Fires’ stunning pop sensibility. Records like Pala are why we do this.Friendly Fires – Pala
So Fresh so clean. Lone on the remix for “Live Those Days Tonight”.Friendly Fires – Live Those Days Tonight (Lone Remix)
From “Paris” to “Jump in the Pool”, Friendly Fires always bring the heat on the choruses. And the out of this world choruses on the band’s cover of Depeche Mode’s “Strange Love” are no exception; a blend of atmospheric house-tinged synths and a falsetto that sounds ripped via satellite from the otherside of galaxy. You could put this cover on American pop radio right now and it’d be a Top 10 hit. It’s that good. It sounds totally fresh, new, and interesting but could still totally slice the charts apart.Friendly Fires – Strange Love (Depeche Mode Cover) via Tastes Like Caramel
