New Music Of The Day: ‘Fickle Friends – Brooklyn’

Bouncing synths, killer pop-hooks and on-point lyrics about modern alienation. You’d best believe a superb new Fickle Friends track is in the world. Last week the Brighton group shared ‘Brooklyn’, the most recent example of their ever-growing mastery of the pop game. But while it sounds joyous, upbeat and rather quite , it’s not all fun and games, as singer Natti explains.

“The whole song is metaphorical and kind of talks about anxiety as someone you don’t understand or recognise – ‘You are someone else, it’s something I can’t define, you are not mine’. It’s probably the song that means the most to me because one year on, I look back at how panicked I was by it all and now, although it’s something that affects me most days, I feel like I’ve got more of a handle on what’s going on in my head.”


If you like the sound of that, the group are heading out on their biggest UK tour to date this month:
