SINGLE REVIEW: Fickle Friends – Brooklyn
Fickle Friends are quickly becoming my favourite new band and after you listen to their previous singles and debut EP I think you will be joining me to exclaim that. The indie-pop outfit have mastered a festival ready sound full of grooving baselines and big hooks that will have you instantly singing along. In preparation for the release of their debut album in 2017 and a headline UK tour kicking off at the end of November the band have dropped a new single and spoiler… it’s a banger. “Brooklyn” follows the structure of previous single “Cry Baby” with its disco-pop vibe with electrifying synths (think Haim meets Chvrches) and a massive chorus. The song has this big positive sound that you can’t help but smile and groove along to but it’s not until you read the lyrics that it sort of just hits you. This song is actually about dealing with anxiety around a situation and a person you are unsure about. It’s a topic that anyone in the current dating climate can relate to and this reflective song is quite therapeutic. I wake up with worry, nothing fills me up. He follows me daily he knows how to love. No true end inside me, I won’t ever say it enough”. Lead vocalist Natassja Shiner captivates you with her distinctive delivery and when you add all these elements together you have another banger. So have I convinced you yet? Fickle Friends are the real deal and you will fall in love with them just as much as I have.
