Fickle Friends confront online stress with their new single, 'Eats Me Up'

Fickle Friends have shared their new single, ‘Eats Me Up’.

The track is the third taste of music to come from their forthcoming second record due later this year - following on from ‘Amatuers’ and ‘Pretty Great’ - and it arrives alongside a video made by the band themselves.

Natti says: "When we took some time away to write this new album it was a welcome break, but I found myself using social media as my main way of keeping up with things. 

"It's a very tricky headspace to be in and there were moments where I felt very alienated, depressed, frustrated, jealous... and scared to say anything at risk of being shamed. 

"Everyone who has access to these online platforms has a voice. They can build you up and tear you down in one tweet ‘Eats Me Up’ is about my relationship with that and how we all need to learn to find space away from it all."

Of the video, she adds: “The general idea was to create this kind of escape, a dream-like world that represents trying to find peace of mind... giving a nod to the mental health theme of the lyrics.”
