So my obsession for the week is Friendly Fires, a band hailing from the UK. Their debut album was released today in the UK on XL Recordings. I first heard of them through their single “Jump in the Pool.” They have a sort of Talking Heads vibe and disco house sound but still very 2008. There song “On Board” has been used in TV spots in the US for the Wii Fit. No word yet on when this will be out in the US.

Click the titles and listen to two songs by Friendly Fires:

Jump in the Pool
On Board
