Single Review – Fickle Friends – Hard To Be Myself

As songs about social anxiety and general awkwardness go new single from Brighton’s Fickle Friends ‘Hard To Be Myself’ manages to hit the nail on the head when it comes to accuracy of an anti-social nature, while also creating an intoxicatingly dreamy danceable track. Centred around imagining yourself as the life of the party, able to talk to that one person you can’t take your eyes off of, despite being permanently glued to the wall, or hidden behind said wall, the song sees lead singer Natti Shiner’s vocal wrapped in enticingly slick synths crafting the most pop of the bands indie-pop tracks to date.
