Fickle Friends releases uplifting and energetic single, ‘What A Time’.
‘What A Time’ is a perfect blend of several genres: the vibe of 80s disco, the vocals of airy indie, and the beat of energetic dance music. The synths give the song more complexity, and creates a sound that is both sentimental and carefree.
Fickle Friends consist of Natti Shiner (vocals), Harry Herrington (bass), Jack Wilson (synth), and Sam Morris (drums).
“‘What A Time’ is an anthem for escapism, with everything that has happened over the last six months, everyone has needed a little time away from the outside world. It’s felt like the world is going to shit, but you need to take some time out for yourself. Shut your bedroom door, turn your music up and dance around the room.”
The ‘What A Time’ video shows the band members in a kaleidoscope of colors and filters. The clips combined portray a surreal, and almost acid-induced experience.
‘What A Time’ is the band’s lead single from their upcoming EP, ‘Weird Years (Season 1)’. It will be released January 15th via Cooking Vinyl. The songs in the EP highlight all the obscure events and feelings the band went through in the last three years.
“It covers everything from waking up and feeling horrendous, to being stuck in lockdown and feeling anxious, to being heartbroken. There’s a lot in there that I think people will relate to.”
