Fickle Friends' Natti talks about Yuval Harari’s Sapiens on a new Talk The Line

24 November 2017, 09:27 | Written by The Line of Best Fit

In this week's episode of Talk The Line, Natti Shiner, singer, songwriter and synth-player in Fickle Friends, talks about one of the most popular non fiction books of the last decade: Yuval Harari’s Sapiens.

Natti was born in the mountains of Switzerland, but raised in Devon and the New Forest by her bohemian Madonna and ABBA-loving mother who’d drag her to WOMAD every summer. A teenage obsession with Avril Lavigne set Natti on the path to music and she stared drumming in her first band when she was 11. She thought she’d end up becoming a doctor, but applied to drama school on a whim and that’s where she met her future bandmates.

Natti’s the first guest we’ve had on Talk The Line to choose a book as her particular obsession and Yuval Harari’s Sapiens is one of the most popular non fiction books of the last decade.

Earlier this week Fickle Friends revealed their debut album You Are Someone Else wil drop on 16 March next year. “This album mostly talks about the feeling that you don’t fit in your own life, forever craving something else," says 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."

There's also a new single "Hard To Be Myself".

In our weekly podcast Talk the Line, we meet the people we love from music, film and television to find out about their passions and obsessions. A new episode drops every Friday - catch up with the episodes you've missed or subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher, Overcast or TuneIn.
