Fuzzystar – High Friends: Track Premiere

Feature by Music Team | 17 Jan 2017

Take a first listen to High Friends, from Fuzzystar's new album Telegraphing

Edinburgh-based artist Andy Thomson, aka Fuzzystar, creates off-kilter indie pop filled with rich lyrical storytelling and lo-fi melodies. Listen to an exclusive stream below of High Friends, taken from his forthcoming album Telegraphing, due for release on 28 April via Satellite Sounds.

Referring to the album’s title, Thomson explains that the songs are about a “mix of love, loss, miscommunication, feelings of alienation or being disconnected. Telegraphing to communicate and also indicating something you may not already be aware of yourself, like the physical metaphor for it, often referred to in boxing.”

When asked about High Friends, Thomson told us this track "was written at one of those periods where myself and some of my closest friends lives seemed to be scattering in different directions, some for good, others less so. It was bit of a junction. I'd just moved to London and was trying to re-adjust, with some old and new friends there and all the others back in Edinburgh."
