“I’m not the one for you” sings Natassja Shiner, lead vocalist of Fickle Friends. Like the band’s moniker, the lovers on “For You” are better off as friends. But there’s no hard feelings here.
“I don’t mind,” Shiner refrains.
The shimmering pop ballad sparkles with 80’s undertones (note the fab guitar riffs). Meanwhile, Shiner’s cool vocals, reminiscent of Jessie Ware, effortlessly evoke a calm detachment from said significant other.
The “For You” video shows two babes going on a hike together filled with the promise of young love. Will it be forever or will it go down in flames? Yes, I just quoted Taylor Swift.
The Brighton five-piece has quickly become the new “it” band in the UK and with a debut album in the works, are now setting their sites on the U.S.
Expect to see much more from these Fickle Friends.
