One band that I really have been into this month is Fickle Friends. They are a 5 piece band from Brighton, UK and I fell in love with their stuff (they’re kind of Indie Pop ish) pretty much as soon as I heard it. I discovered them early last year from a Youtube channel called ‘The Hyve’ so looked at their own channel and loved all the songs I heard!
Check out their main website to find the links to all of the songs they have on Youtube.
What I like about this band is the heavy influence of synths and the 80’s feel (I keep telling my mum that I was born in the wrong era haha) . They also have an up beat style to them with sweet little guitar riffs, great use of the open high-hat and interesting bass lines.
I think they have a perfect balance between the pitches of the instrument ensemble and the pitches of the vocals – particular the lead singer.
Fickle Friends have released 1 EP called ‘Velvet’ and 8 singles, 1 of which is on the EP. Below is a list of all the songs I could find, and I’ve highlighted my favourites:
- Swim (2014)
- Play (2014)
- For You (2014)
- Could Be Wrong (2015)
- Say No More (2015)
- Velvet (2015)
- Paris (2015)
- Shake Her (2015)
- Swim (2016)*
- Cry Baby (2016)
- Brooklyn (2016)
*This song was re-released, along with an official video.
Peace and love ✌💚
