Lockdown has done nothing to dampen the feel-good spirit of Fickle Friends, their sophomore record finds them full of positivity from the opener Love You To Death’s in your face dance vibes and dirty guitar riffs, to the high adrenaline blast of Yeah Yeah Yeah.

Won’t Hurt Myself is a nice slice of emo pop and a potential single whilst both Write Me A Song and Glow are big fun party anthems – the latter with a distinct 70s groove – that will please fans of the band’s debut. Pretty Great’s summery vibes will warm up the winter blues and the title is a fairly apt summary for a band that haven’t let the small matters of global pandemics get in their way.
