Fiction formed in South West London in the late-2000’s by brothers Mike and Nick Barrett and friend James Howard. Their early chaotic, yet thoughtful excursions into post-punk were later refined by the addition of David Miller on bass and Danish drummer Jacob Smedegaard.
The band’s debut album, The Big Other – its name borrowed from French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan – layered intricate melodies around themes of nostalgia and introspection, showcasing an expansive range of ideas and sounds.
The last 18 months have seen the five-piece evolve a more candid approach to their songwriting. Co-singers Mike and James weave a narrative that balances contemporary concerns such as hyper-connectivity and cultural stasis with a human vulnerability and desire for tenderness. Sonically the band have continued their exploration of alternative 80’s soundscapes whilst adding unexpected textures that also reveal a love of psych, prog and early rave.
This EP has been supported by the Momentum Music Fund. Momentum is
managed by PRS for Music Foundation, supported using public funding by National Lottery through
Arts Council England, and in association with Deezer.
