Fickle Friends

Story by Jack Foley

IN celebration of their hugely anticipated debut album You Are Someone Else on Polydor Records, Fickle Friends have announced their biggest ever UK headline tour.

The seven-date jaunt includes their biggest London show to date at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on October 19, 2018.

To date, Fickle Friends have played over 350 live shows together, been play listed regularly on Radio 1 with an incredible string of singles – including Brooklyn, Glue and Hello Hello – headlined a sold-out London Forum – and all before announcing their debut album.

Debut album You Are Someone Else is being described as an irresistible record, effortlessly capturing both the joy 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.

On writing their debut album, Natti said: “This album mostly talks about the feeling that you don’t fit in your own life, forever craving something else. I felt like I was stuck in a perpetual nightmare of bad relationships and worry for so long and this collection of songs kinda pulled me out of that.

“We wrote and produced the bulk of everything between Jack’s bedroom, the tour van and LA so it’s been mostly DIY with an array of producers allowing us to get that extra 20%. We always wanted to make a record that made people dance and think at the same time.

“If any of these songs help anyone feel cool, or strong or even just less alone then we’ll have achieved what we wanted.”
