“Friends in High Places” the new single from Narcissus Featuring Becki Fishwick is out today after the success of previous single “Cuttin’ Thru Red Tape”, which Fishwick also appeared on. Fans are in luck as only a week apart , Friday the 3rd September sees the song reimagined in an excellent remix by Sink Ya Teeth.
Written by Narcissus band members Chris James, Ben Guy and Lee Mulvey, “Friends in High Places” dips its toes into the 1960’s , featuring vocals from Becki Fishwick which bring this trip-hop torch song to life, giving vibes of a Bond theme hat could almost have been written by Massive Attack.
Narcissus are ready to take the Manchester indie scene and across the UK by storm as a truly innovative band. “Friends in High Places” is filled with strings and modern big sounding beats set to the Amy Winehouse-esque vocals of Becki Fishwick. With inspiration taken from Billie Holiday, these vocals truly take the song to new heights and give a total spine tingling sensation to listeners.
Mixed and recorded at Oxygene Studios, the track was produced by Christophe Bride & the band themselves . Lee Mulvey (guitar and bass) and Chris James ( beats and programming) perfectly blend together with Becki Fishwick’s vocals on this track mastered by Ben Booker.
Utilising the amazing vocals of Becki, Sink Ya Teeth take the song in a completely different direction with their remix, with a post-punk-funk feel and deep electronic vibe the tracks is perfect for an incredible dance floor filler inspired by anthems from the early 2000’s.
With the success of “Cuttin’ Thru Red Tape” which gained strong support from Radio X’s John Kennedy, “Friends in High Places” in its original form and remixed version look set to bring even more success the bands way.
“Friends in High Places” the new single from Narcissus featuring Becki Fishwick, which will appear on the upcoming album “A Sense Of Place” is out now.
