Prepare to get the new Fickle Friends pop bop Glue stuck in your head.

An 80s-tastic floor filler, the alternative pop band’s latest is packed with heavy synths, upbeat bass and ecstatic vocals, all shot through playful drums.

It’s arguably their most infectious single yet, following up a run of singles including Hello Hello earlier this year and past favourites Swim and Cry Baby.

Completely self-produced, Glue is all about the incomparable elation of summer love, a song for nights spent on sticky dancefloors, plastic cup of rum held aloft.

Fickle Friends have also announced a headline tour, encompassing 13 dates in October.

The five-piece are also set for various festivals this summer, the largest of which are TRNSMT and Reading and Leeds Festival.
