Natti Shiner on Broken Sleep & Palmeira Music
We are so psyched to be starting our own label, Palmeira Music, and taking back the reins… releasing the music we LOVE. Palmeira, meaning palm tree in Portuguese, was also the name of the square we used to live off of in Brighton when we first started the band. We can’t wait to release our brand new EP, its 3 fresh songs which came about because of a new found headspace after we released our full length LP earlier this year.
The announcement of Broken Sleep comes just prior to the launch of their 12 city, North American Headline tour, which kicks off September 25 in Washington D.C., which are being celebrated as the band’s first full American tour.
Most recently, the band released their debut album,You Are Someone Else,which hit top 10 in the Official UK Album Charts, followed by the acoustic and remix companion EP. You Are Someone Else (Versions). Not one to lull, the band hopped right back in the studio, spending the summer finalizing the new EP, which Shiner says “came about as a result of a newfound headspace after the release of our debut full length release earlier in the year.“
On Broken Sleep, Fickle Friends create exactly what they’ve become known for – perfectly polished, dance-friendly indie-pop.
