Fickle Friends – SWIM + (Paperwhite Remix)
This quintet from Brighton, in the UK, has really caught my attention. Fickle Friends own specific brand of synth pop somehow walks a fine line, but in the end hits just the right note.
Enough with the music puns, this song is a lot fun. SWIM is an upbeat, poppy tune that wraps synth, vocals and guitar in perfect harmony. Somewhere, André Allen Anjos, better known as RAC, is kicking himself that he didn’t come up with it first.
I also am really enjoying the Paperwhite Remix of this song. It changes the flavor a bit while keeping the feel of the original. It’s an excellent example of what a good remix can do and I appreciate the dreamy landscape at work in this one.
