fika Releases New Song “How Can I Love? (When I Can't Get Away From You)” featuring Bambie
- South-London based pop duo fika, consisting of Sam Hutton and Al Wreaves, released a new song “How Can I Love? (When I Can't Get Away From You)” from their upcoming EP “Coffee & Clouds”, which is set to be released on October 8, 2021.
The duo collaborated with London-based singer-songwriter Bambie for the song.
The track is the opening track on the EP and is written about being caught in the intoxicating throngs of an abusive relationship.
“As soon as we wrote the hook, we wanted to make it a recurring theme that continues coming back”, fika said how the melodic intensity of the track matches the emotional power of the lyrics. “We wanted the song to flow in and out until there's a massive climax at the end”.
The duo worked with a producer Fabich on the EP. “He's a bit like the Godfather of fika”, the duo said of the Berlin-based producer. “He's been a massive inspiration and taught us a lot. He was one of our very first sessions and we've never looked back since. We met Bambie through Fabich They're long-term collaborators and we always wanted to work with them. The first couple of sessions we all did together, this EP was created”.
The duo continued, “By the time we made a beat, Bambie would have written most of the song and perform it back to us. We'd get this one magical moment of listening back to our song, for the very first time, in real time.”
