  • Never at a loss for something to say, The Fixx frontman Cy Curnin's lyrics for Beautiful Friction contain a backdrop of responsibility and the need to be accountable for actions. Said the singer: "It seems we've all ground to a bit of a halt with so much unrest, the Occupy movement, debt, war and more. We ultimately see the album as positive, eager for the dawn of a new era, the possibility to change the way we see the world and to view it with more optimism. That's why we called it Beautiful Friction - the times we live in are tough, but there's a beauty in that. There's a hope."
