Track Of The Day: Fightmilk – ‘If You Had A Sister’

With their upcoming new album set for release early next year, and following last single ‘I’m Starting To Think You Don’t Even Want To Go To Space’, GIHE faves and previous headliners for us at The Finsbury Fightmilk have now shared a brand new offering.

Perhaps more sombre in tone than previous releases, ‘If You Had A Sister’ oozes a twinkling, swirling melancholy and heartfelt lyricism whilst losing none of the band’s trademark catchy, emo-tinged indie-pop goodness. Propelled by the gritty, raw emotion of front person Lily’s yearning vocals alongside scuzzy hooks and perfectly interwoven musical layers, it offers a shimmering reflection on life and loss; showcasing a band that are continuously refining their sound and, in the process, consistently continuing to win my heart.

Of the track, the band explain:

It’s a bit slower and quieter than the fast guitar pop of the last album, and it’s about all kinds of dark things – but if there was ever a time for songs you can do ominous slow dancing to, it’s 2020.

 

‘If You Had A Sister’ is out now via Reckless Yes.
