NEWS: Fickle Friends share new single ‘Cry Baby’

Brighton indie five-piece Fickle Friends have shared their new single ‘Cry Baby.’  The follow up to ‘Swim’ in April, it’s another slice of effervescent indie-pop that will help to soundtrack the summer months.  It’s also the first piece of music to come back from their first recording session in Los Angeles with producer Mike Crossney (who’s worked with Wolf Alice, Foals and The 1975).

Frontwoman Natti Shiner said of the track: “I watched the John Waters film on New Year’s Day with someone I’d just started hanging out with and the title Cry Baby definitely triggered something in me.  As quite a cynical person I’m often very quick to question both my own and other people’s capacity to feel… emotion… anything and that’s what ‘Cry Baby’ is about really.  That and the fact I found it quite odd to miss someone I’d only just met.”  Listen below.

Fickle Friends are playing a few festivals in the UK this summer as well as a single London date in November.  Details below.

26th August – Reading Festival
27th August – Leeds Festival
