Never miss another 'Fiction' show


With their long awaited debut album out on Moshi Moshi on March 4th, Fiction head out on a UK tour to celebrate.

In the weird, hyper-speed blog-world of the 21st century musical underground Fiction’s ‘80‘s inflected, thoughtful, outsider indie has served to set them apart from a revolving door of faddish trends and fly by night 'scenes'. Taking a template determined by debut single Curiosity, the London based quintet of James Howard, Mike Barrett, Nick Barrett, Dave Miller and Jacob Smedegaard saw their rich mash of poly-rhythms and spidery guitar lines pay dividends when second single Big Things was picked up and playlisted by 6music and chosen for an advert by Ford.

The distillation of eighteen months work, 'The Big Other', produced by Ash Workman and James Ford, is relaxed and more comfortable in itself, with a more restrained exploration of melody and harmony than you'd have guessed from their earlier singles, The Big Other showcases how far Fiction have come in their musical development.
