Swansea, Wales indie rock/alt band The Fiends have aired their new single “Cyanide” alongside an accompanying music video.
The band formed during the global pandemic and draw influence from the likes of Fontaines DC, Idles, Arctic Monkeys and many more.
Of the track, they say: “Cyanide is an outlook on youth that reflects on being young and dumb with alcohol and drugs. From Ethan’s perspective, it’s what almost everyone experiences going to a house party that is often a rush of chaotic energy, probably because all the teenagers took cocaine or something like that.
The song itself depicts that addicting feeling as it’s one of our catchiest indie tunes to date. Josh and Bal are driving the riff throughout verses until the hook hits you like a rush. I think our fans love it so much because it’s something they can relate to and shout back at us at the same time.”
The song is out today (Oct 18), get it here, and watch/listen below.
