Live Review | Fickle Friends | The Mash House

With no less than eight UK festival appearances under their belt in 2016, amidst recording their debut album in LA and touring across the country, it’s been a non-stop year for Fickle Friends.

Despite having no album release behind them, the five-piece has already managed to rack up more than 9 million plays on Spotify while they’ve taken to the stage at more than 53 festivals over the past 2 years.

The Brighton band returned to Scotland with their 80’s inspired indie pop sound at Edinburgh’s The Mash House.

Supported by Edinburgh’s indie pop four-piece Rebel Westerns, who warmed the crowd up with their indie pop blend that had the crowd grooving, alongside Huntar who impressed the venue with his futuristic R’n’B vibe and captivating vocals, the line-up crafted the perfect blend for a Saturday night. 

As fans gathered down the front of the venue for Fickle Friends, it was evident from the first chord struck that the crowd were more than ready to dance the night away.

‘Playing in Scotland is my favourite part of touring. I f*cking love it! Don’t you?’ front woman Natti Shiner exclaimed just a few songs into their set.

The band’s infectious summery sounds quickly brought festival season flooding back in the intimate venue as they performed a range of tracks taken from their previous EP releases.

With their new album due out in Summer 2017, the band also gave fans a taster of the new release by performing two tracks back-to-back with ‘Bite’ a particular standout track that we can’t wait to hear recorded.

Set highlights came in the form of the band’s triple track closure with ‘Say No More’, ‘Swim’ and recent single ‘Brooklyn’ which drew the biggest singalong on the night.

As Natti’s shimmering vocals led the way on the night, it would be impossible not to be completely charmed by the band after catching them live.

Now, it’s time to wait patiently as the countdown for their debut album release is on!

Stay tuned for our full interview with the band….
