Lovesick

Album: Friendly Fires (2008)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the seventh track on British synth pop band Friendly Fires', debut eponymous album.
  • Lead singer Ed Macfarlane recalled to Drowned In Sound: "This song was a complete pain to record. It took on about ten different forms before we ended up with the final piece. When producing it I heard myself sing the word "Lovesick" about 100,000,000,000 times. Despite the struggle I think we created a stripped down, sultry gem. The guitar parts are a direct nod to disco legends GQ."
