Buzzy pop quartet FIZZ have today released a new single, ‘As Good As It Gets’ - the fourth track to be shared from their forthcoming debut album, ‘The Secret To Life’. Made up of friends dodie, Orla Gartland, Greta Isaac and Martin Luke Brown, FIZZ have quickly built anticipation around the record via a string of joyous singles (‘High In Brighton’, ‘Hell of a Ride’ and ‘Close One’).
Discussing ‘As Good As It Gets’, the band say: “[It’s] the result of years of being told to smile, of being interrupted and cut across, patronising tones and having your space invaded - a cry for having to be grateful of absolutely nothing. This song serves as a unified call of disdain and our belief that we deserve more than we think, always.”
Given that the track explores experiences which are particularly female, the band decided to have Martin step back from vocal duties. Instead, they were joined by Tummyache’s Soren Bryce (who also engineered the album), which they say felt “like opening a valve after years of built up pressure and tension; it was cathartic and healing.”
