Over an expansive half decade that began as a five-piece band in Brighton who went on to sign a deal with Polydor, they dropped their sparkling, electronic-infused debut album You Are Someone Else in 2018 that broke the charts Top 10, before making a decisive exit from major label life to pursue a record and aesthetic solely within their control, in partnership with new label Cooking Vinyl. The band packed out gigs up and down the UK and across the pond in the US and Canada, sold out Shepherd’s Bush Empire, rallied festival crowds from Reading to Bangkok, and remained a firm fave on Radio 1 roundups (with specialist support from Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders, to the daytime spins of Scott Mills,and Greg James) and Spotify’s top alternative playlists.
Going forward, the group continues to interrogate how they can be a better band for the planet. They’re passionate about climate activism–attending the strikes with peers Wolf Alice and Black Honey–and they collaborated with PETA to spread the good word at their gigs. Natti’s been successfully running Swap Shop, a sustainable event for swapping and recycling clothes in an upstart challenge to fast fashion, and has plans to bring it to their upcoming shows. They’re also working on sourcing vintage shirts to print on for an environmentally conscious Fickle Friends merch line.
