Does anyone remember the scene that brought wedge haircuts, pegged trousers and the funk driven bass lines of Level 42 to pop music in the 80’s? Well, Level 42 was never the coolest band on the planet, unless perhaps you were a Pringle cardigan wearing 18 year old in leafy Surrey around that time; but now, if you never have done before, you can prepare to delve deep into the likes of Lessons In Love and Running In The Family, because Fickle Friends new one Say No More brings that Mark King bass-face sound right up to date and it's remarkably good.
Fresh from playing Dials Festival (pictured above), a relatively small 5 venue event that Breaking More Waves helped organise (you can read our thoughts on running a festival using this link), Fickle Friends once again prove that they know how to write a pop song. We suspect this one isn’t just for the trendy pop kids in the know, but the mums and dads as well. Quite possibly our favourite Fickle Friends song since Swim.
