narcissus x becki fishwick – friends in high places [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

epic, mancunian electronica

Tell us a few things about your new song Friends In High Places . What is the story behind it?

Its a torch song inspired by the likes of Billie Holiday where the protagonist grieves for a love lost before eventually finding herself again in the payoff of the last lines of the song. The track is completely elevated by Becki Fishwick who delivers an incredible vocal on it.

What is the story behind your name?

narcissus is drawn from Greek mythology & was meant to playfully allude to the absurd vanity of being in a band. The story goes that narcissus ultimately kills himself by drowning in a pool whilst admiring his own reflection. Take from that what you will.

What do you enjoy most? Writing music or performing your music live?

We enjoy both obviously but we would say that we are primarily a studio band who love nothing more than the writing & recording process.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?

To get heard and to get paid fairly for your work from certain major streaming platforms! Obviously the genie is out of the bottle with streaming but the #BrokenRecord campaign does give artists a glimmer of hope for change in future.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Don’t concern yourself with the outcome, trust in the process and serve the song.

What is the most useless talent you have?

Giving witty answers to ridiculous interview questions.

Thank you!
