From the first 10 seconds of my listen to Brooklyn band Red Wire Black Wire's synthesized rock jam "Breathing Fire" (from last year's LP release "Robots + Roses") I was like "oh shit this is great!" - in fact if you ask my office mate he'd probably tell you I said that out loud.
There is definitely a Friendly Fires thing happening, but something a little... grittier...sonic yum all around. And true story I have listened to this song over and over again it might as well burn a hole in my itunes (that would be bad though) and booked them for my CMJ party right away.
