Unless you count frontman Ed Macfarlane’s vocal on Disclosure’s “Defeated No More,” UK dance-rockers Friendly Fires haven’t released new music since 2011’s Pala. That changes today, as the group unveils a collaborative track with the Asphodells, the duo comprising Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J Fairplay. “Before Your Eyes” is the sound of an ethereal glow zipping ahead at a fervent pace, resulting in a sensation of hazy urgency that feels a lot like hurrying to finish up your work on Friday afternoon so you can enjoy your weekend. Listen below. You’ll also find a trailer for Friendly Fires and the Asphodells’ upcoming double-A-side single, which features another new song called “Velo.”
The “Before Your Eyes”/”Velo” single is out 3/31 on Friendly Fires’ new label, Telophase.
