Fickle Friends are a band able to shoot for the stars.

Banger


We don’t know where Friendly Fires are. Calvin is off being popular with the cool kids in the mainstream lanes. We need someone to deliver us an endless stream of sunny day bops. Thank fuck for Fickle Friends.

On one of the hottest runs for a new act in recent memory (seriously, check out their last five tracks and tell us that’s not one hell of a streak), they’re playing themselves into the type of form that starts to get fans of gigantic bangers really, really excited.

To call ‘Glue’ just the latest in a line of fantastic pop songs would be to do it a disservice, but when keeping such exceptional company even the brightest of moments takes its place in the pack. Through hazy hype and sun drenched vibes, it’s the latest sign that Fickle Friends are a band able to shoot for the stars. From what we’ve seen, they’ll probably find a universe all of their own to rule. Stephen Ackroyd
