Brighton indie pop act Fickle Friends have had a wild 2018 so far. The band released their debut album, You Are Someone Else, via Interscope Records which hit #9 on the Billboard UK Charts and is chock-full of infectious bops, before playing three sold out shows in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
Earlier this week, the band released an acoustic version of “Say No More,” a fan favorite – and a personal favorite of mine as well. The track comes with the announcement of an upcoming EP titled You Are Someone Else (Versions) which will feature special versions of select tracks from the debut release. It goes without saying that we’re beyond excited to see what the neon-filled act will bring to life with this EP and we’ll keep you posted on details as they’re announced!
In the meantime, give “Say No More (Acoustic)” a spin below and thank us later.
With quite the impressive resume, Ben Talmi has not only worked on creating music for himself, but has also composed scores and string arrangements for television, film, and artists including Manchester Orchestra. Last year, we caught up with Talmi for an acoustic version of his track “Someday” and a cover of “Kathy’s Song,” originally by Paul Simon, which you can listen to below!
As continue our Flashback February posts this week, we’ve realized that…well…it’s no longer February. This last month flew by and we easily lost track of time. That being said, we’re just going to pretend that it’s February through the end of this week and share with you the remaining sessions we’ve got lined up for you! Let’s jump in, shall we?
We caught up with Grammy-nominated Seth Glier, right before the release of his album, Birds. A personal project for Glier which was written after the passing of his brother, we were treated with a captivating acoustic version of “I’m Still Looking.” Give it a spin below!
Our last rewind for the day includes all of the tunes we’ve been missing out on for the last two weeks – and man, did we miss a ton. We’ve got new music from Paramore, Plain White T’s, Kiefer Sutherland, Goody Grace, MisterWives, Sarah Solovay, Civil Youth, and All Time Low, among others, and we are so excited for some of these artist’s to release albums later this year!
Check out these new tunes and more below and let us know who you’re most excited to hear from by tweeting us at @_lucyoutloud.
We recently stopped by the Big Picture Media offices in New York City to hang out with David Beck of Blue Healer for a fun acoustic session! Keep your eyes peeled for an acoustic version of the band’s latest single “Only The Rain” along with an interview later this week!
