The Manchester-based band, who've been together for only a year, are playing SXSW before releasing this single, Counterpoint, as their first foray into the realm of music for public purchase. There'll be a 12" and, of course, a download.
If you're in London this week you can catch them at the newly opened Queen Of Hoxton on Friday night too.
We reckon you're going to hear a lot more of them in 2009. Not only that, but this will be a good thing.
Just one reason why this is the case? Ewan Pearson's producing the album. His production credits include The Rapture's Pieces Of The People We Love and he played on M83's album Saturdays=Youth.
So here's a video for you. A bit Friendly Fires, no?
