Fickle Friends are to play Cardiff’s Globe as part of a UK tour in support of their anticipated debut album. ‘You Are Someone Else’ will be released on March 16.
Blessed with the same dedication to writing quirky anthems on their own terms as The 1975, the brittle icy synth flourishes of Chvrches and a new era indie pop IT girl in singer Natti Shiner, Fickle Friends have established themselves as the essential new British indie-pop band of 2018.
They’ve 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 releasing their debut album.
‘You Are Someone Else’ is an irresistible debut 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.
