Fickle Friends detail first album You Are Someone Else

22 November 2017, 16:19 | Written by Laurence Day

Indie-poppers Fickle Friends have announced debut album You Are Someone Else and a new 18-date UK tour.

The album comes after a string of earworm-riddled tunes such as "Brooklyn", "Glue", "Hello Hello", "Cry Baby", "Swim", and current offering "Hard To Be Myself".

"This album mostly talks about the feeling that you don’t fit in your own life, forever craving something else," says the band's Natti Shiner. "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."

Fickle Friends have also announced a new UK tour, which will begin at Cardiff's Globe on 26 February and finish at Belle in Edinburgh on 22 March. Find out more.

You Are Someone Else is out 16 March 2018 via Polydor.
