Brighton band Fickle Friends release the second single from their upcoming EP, Broken Sleep – this time it’s the chilled, light bop, The Moment.
If Fickle Friends’ debut album You Are Someone Else was intended to be more of an introductory release setting out the group’s trademark sound, then their upcoming Broken Sleep EP looks set to be the experimental record which takes the band in exciting new directions.
Much like the previous release – the lead single and title track, Broken Sleep – The Moment has a vibe which certainly feels different to Shiner and co.’s back catalogue, yet has enough familiarity to it so as to not alienate their loyal fanbase.
It’s reminiscent of Midnight, albeit with a more experimental rhythm and tempo – one which runs away from the band in the song’s bridge. A steady beat quickly switches to a complex drum groove which fails to interlace with Natti’s typical soft vocals. Otherwise, the song still has a driving feel to it – galactic synths and a bouncy lyrical structure give this track the usual Fickle Friends bounciness which makes it a welcome addition to their experimental indie pop collection.
The Moment is the second single released from Fickle Friends’ upcoming EP, Broken Sleep, out later this year.
