Blessed with the same dedication to writing quirky anthems on their own terms as The 1975, the brittle icy synth flourishes of Chvrches and a new era indie pop IT girl in singer Natti Shiner, Fickle Friends have established themselves as the essential new British indie pop band of 2018. They’ve played over 350 live shows together, been playlisted regularly on Radio 1 with an incredible string of singles including ‘Brooklyn’, ‘Glue’ and ‘ Swim’ ‘Hello Hello’ & a headlined a sold out London Forum and all before announcing their debut album. Until now...
‘You Are Someone Else’ is an irresistible debut record, effortlessly capturing both the joy a and uncertainty of growing up a 2017 millennial . Songs addressing social awkwardness, self doubt, anxiety and the qualms of growing into young adulthood all through a prism of perfect timeless pop.
Current single ‘Hard To Be Myself’ is an undeniably brilliant pop anthem for a pre loading generation of wasted youth that flips lyrically from gloriously hedonistic abandon to naked self analysis, while tracks such as ‘Lovesick’ Wake Me Up’ addresses angsty obsession and the art of over thinking. The album as a whole pivots around relationships and their tireless effects on the young mind, exploring the highs and lows of dating, falling in love and of course, breaking up.
