The rules are simple...there's a hat, this hat is filled with many questions ranging from the personal to the off beat.  We pass the hat, and artists gets a chance to answer the question they choose from said hat.  Fun is had by all.

Fickle Friends had a whirlwind year last year, starting with the release of their debut album, You Are Someone Else. Followed by a full scale US headlining tour, amongst many other cool highlights.   We caught Fickle Friends before their show in Philly for the latest Chat in a Hat.

Without further ado, here's our Chat in the Hat with Nat and Jack of Fickle Friends:


Chat in a Hat: Fickle Friends


Outside of music do you have any hobbies?

Jack - I’ve taken up filming.

Nat - Is that your only hobby…

Jack - Yeah that’s why I did it, music was my hobby, and now my job, so I needed another hobby. So I got a camera and did some filming.  How about you?

Nat - Does yoga count as a hobby?  I’m really into yoga.

Give your bandmates and review like you would on Yelp

Sam - solid and reliable, but not to be messed with.  Fun and fair

Harry -  happy go lucky, but don’t speak to him if he’s tired

Chris - bit dozy.  Airy fairy.  Go to if you want a compliment or massage

Jack - bit of a mess, but a fun time guy.  Has his moments

What’s the last movie you cried to?

Nat - I watched Milk on the plane and bawled my eyes out

Give me your best door to door salesman pitch for you album

Lot of bang for your buck.  16 pop songs for not a lot of money

What’s your best party trick?

Nat - jumping into the splits

What is the coolest venue you’ve ever played?

I think Thekla in Bristol.  It’s a boat and you’re basically underwater playing.

What is your favourite song / album right now?

“Daphne Blue” - The Band Camino

If you could have any superpower what would you want?

Jack - some kinda of time traveling power like Doctor Strange

Nat - mine would probably be clicking my fingers and go to wherever I want

Jack - I think time is the most valuable thing so I could travel, but go back and travel
