Radio 1 Newsbeat has written an article about Jack Savidge’s flat mate, Adam Connolly, who very sadly committed suicide last November. To raise awareness about suicide prevention, Friendly Fires helped organize a “For Adam” gig.
On suicide prevention, Jack has said, “I think it’s important that people who think they are suffering from clinical depression, dont just go to their GP, but actually talk about it with people who are close to them, because I think you can probably get a more sense of understanding from someone who knows you well.”
Visit the BBC advice page if you or a friend are affected by this issue or you want to learn more information on prevention.

Ed Macfarlane has joined New York producer FaltyDL to create the sun-kissed single ‘She Sleeps’, the second single from FaltyDL’s new album Hardcourage.
The only vocal song on Hardcourage, “She Sleeps” features a brilliant, haunting turn from Ed Macfarlane. Mysterious, tender and reflective, his lyrics weave around the driving, purposeful percussion and a melody that’s singularly exploratory and gentle.
In the past five years the New York producer has won widespread praise for his house flecked take on deconstructed UK Garage, releasing albums on Planet Mu, Ninja Tune, supporting Radiohead and launching his own label Blueberry Records.
The single comes with a remix package that more than does justice to the quality of the original. Holland’s electronic pioneer Martyn has reworked the track into a writhing, muscular dancefloor stomp. Gang Gang Dance turn it into an opus of rich texture and uplifting, melancholic melody. Ital’s remix takes things a touch darker and industrial, warping the melody into something altogether more ominous, while exuberant London boogie-ists 2000Black have worked “She Sleeps” into a deep, hypnotic soulful groove.
‘She Sleeps’ is available to buy now from the Ninja Tunes Store
