Fickle Friends - New Waves
Brighton’s Fickle Friends make the kind of life-affirming indie-pop racket that creates angular elbow twitching and furious head bobbing melees in these parts. It seems that similar dad dancing might well be taking place in the kitchens of one Mr Jamie Oliver as well, the band having won the celebrity chef’s Summer Jam competition, bagging themselves the opportunity to play at his ‘Big Feastival’ in 2013.
Having formed in 2012 Fickle Friends have already released an EP A Girl Like That and the start of 2014 will see new track Swim featuring on a compilation put together by Killing Moon Records and Ally McCrae of Radio 1. Swim is another song that will guarantee sock-melting chicken-dancing grooves a plenty. The tune we’re introducing readers of Breaking More Waves to Fickle Firends with however is the vibrant I Want / You Want. It’s an examination of relationships that stabs and blasts with an itchy irrepressibility and giddy guitars. This will get the post-Christmas adrenalin flowing at the jangle disco.
Fickle Friends can be found treading the boards alongside one of Breaking More Waves favourite pop belles Laurel at Camden Barfly on the 9th of January. Get there early to catch them and dance a bit silly.
