Hear Le Galaxie & Elaine Mai cover Friendly Fires’ ‘Paris’


Whether it’s anti-Muslim sentiment on Facebook, a terrorist attack on a music venue, or yet another over-reported Donald Trump quote, the world can feel like a hopeless place. It can be hard to counteract the hate and division happening in the world.

Le Galaxie, decided to do something positive and send it out into the world. Namely, recording a version of Friendly Fires’ ‘Paris’ with vocals from Elaine Mai.

The band say:

The internet is a miserable place right now. Understandably. Good people feel compelled to disseminate displays of ignorance and bigotry to shame, highlight and challenge it. We need to confront it all. But it’s hard on your outlook, it’s hard on your hope and hard on your faith in human beings. So we had a idea: take Friendly Fires’ banger about Paris, a city that ALL people deserve to love and explore, and Le Galaxie it. We wanted to take a tune we loved and make our own romantic, emotional and optimistic version with a big help from the one and only Elaine Mai. Nous espérons que vous apprécierez xx

27th December – Dolans Warehouse, Limerick
