"You Are Someone Else" is the debut studio album by British indie pop collective Fickle Friends. It was released on 16 March 2018 through Polydor Records. The album and single artwork was designed by visual artist Mat Maitland, who worked with the likes of Michael Jackson and Josef Salvat and is the co-creator of the seafox mascot for Galantis.
On You Are Someone Else, Fickle Friends dance through the decades; there are moments dashed with Disco and spun in the candy-floss of Dance Pop, alongside Indie-infused meanderings into the ‘70s and ‘80s that totally bop. Hell, even the album’s cover looks like a Patrick Nagel-crafted, Duran Duran-inspired artistic rendering. How can you not love that? Hungry like wolves for an infectious (sonic) epidemic, Fickle Friends are saccharine sweet, candy-coated Indie Pop that takes the very best of yesterday’s dance-floor antics and injects a full-on dose of modernism into that neon, spandex-adorned picture. A delicious nominee for your newest not-quite-guilty pleasure, musically speaking, Fickle Friends have pizzazz in spades. For these reasons, CrypticRock give Fickle Friends’ You Are Someone Else 4 of 5 stars. User Comments
