MUSIC: Fickle Friends: “Swim”

by Maya Aaliya


This song just feels good. Appropriately titled “Swim,” Fickle Friends is a splash of cold water to the proverbial face. The five-member, Brighton, UK band gives us guitar riffs and synths that instantly recall Prince and his purple majesty at the height of 80’s dance. While “Swim” make waves, the tune can be found on a compilation effort between Killing Moon Records and BBC Radio 1’s Ally McCrae.Released the 1st of the year, Fickle Friends dive into 2014 as one’s to clock…Judges say: 10!
