SOTW: Swim by Fickle Friends

Posted on the 15 August 2016 by Krickeyb

It is only August 15, but I cannot resist starting to create a playlist for two upcoming road trips that David and I will be taking in October. The first is relatively short, but it is our trip to Philly. The second is to the Outer Banks at the end of October with some of my family. That trip is kind of a family vacation, but really it is just a long weekend spending time together having a blast on our favorite beach! Obviously, with trips that involve driving well over two hours, I have to create playlists that keep us moving right along. Given my love for music and skills with the aux cord, David always lets me take control.

I thought it would be a fun idea to share one song each week leading up to the final trip in October. These songs will be on our road trip playlist and I recommend adding them to yours, too! Please let me know what you think of the songs and/or share your favorite road trip songs. I am always looking for new music to enjoy.

The first song I am going to share is by Fickle Friends called Swim. How can I not kick off our trip playlist with a song entitled “Swim” haha? This song is so upbeat, screams vacation, and is perfect for starting off a long road trip to wherever your destination.

Fickle Friends are an Indie Pop band from the UK. If you haven’t figured out from past songs of the week by now… I listen to a lot of bands from the UK. They will be shared a lot on here, but I do promise to mix it up from time to time! I absolutely recommend checking out Fickle Friends when you have the time. They are a great band with some catchy tunes and unique instrumentation. Some of my other favorites from them are, “Say No More,” “Paris,” and “Cry Baby.”

Share your thoughts below! Thanks for listening and tune in next week for more road trip music!

Completely unwarranted life lesson from a married woman #23: If you are going to be a passenger for a long road trip, you always get control of the music… unless your taste in music is sub-par.
