Fickle Friends have released their debut full-length, You Are Someone Else on Interscope Records. The new record, which Billboard calls "neon dance tunes with bite" is laced together with upbeat indie bops featuring unapologetic lyrics about toxic friendships, feelings of worthlessness, slippery relationships, mental health and a lot of other overwhelming emotions felt during young adulthood and young adult relationships. In addition to the newest track "Wake Me Up," You Are Someone Else features the band's five previously-released bangers "Hello Hello," "Hard To Be Myself," "Swim," "Glue" and "Brooklyn."
The band's crushingly-catchy melodies and hook-driven refrains have directly impacted their reach, with over 50 million streams on Spotify and praise from Pitchfork, Nylon, and Paste. As a result, You Are Someone Else encapsulates what Stereogum has already described as "infectious" and Noisey called "a sparkling slab of indie-pop." Tenacious and steadfast, it is the band's stubborn perseverance that has helped slingshot them forward. Building then riding their own wave of momentum, the band has played over 400 shows and hundreds of festivals, traveling to most from the Sam the drummer's mom's Ford Galaxy. As Billboard explains, "Fickle Friends don't play by anyone's rules but their own. That's how they've managed to create such an impressive path for themselves."
