A big shout out to Breaking More Waves for turning us on to this one, and it’s right up our street. Fickle Friends are a UK IndiePop outfit whos début single, Swim, has been making quite stir on blogs who like a bit of jangly guitar. From the sound of it we expect them to be festival faves over the coming summer. What we’ve got here, though, is a reMix of the track from Brooklyn DreamPop duo Paperwhite, who do things to the song that come straight from our dreams.
Thick 80s Pop beats, with a hint of a B-boy groove, matched up with popping, summery synths and rich pads. The vocals sound like they were always meant for ElectroPop, the whole package is just pretty stunning. Energetic ElectroPop with just the right amount of nostalgia and just the right amount of swing. This tune has been played to death here in the last 48 hours, and we’re still nowhere close to getting bored of it, it’s got a classic sound that I don’t think we’d ever tire of. Definitely keeping a massive beady eye on Paperwhite from now on.
