Having accidently discovered this band at The Great Escape, I immediately fell for Fiction’s catchy indie sound that hasn’t graced the industry in quite some time now.

The catchy afro-pop beats are flecked by quirky indie melodies to create a sound that makes you dance the night away. This isn’t your generic indie pop though because while ‘Big Things’ gets you bopping around like early Mystery Jets tunes, ‘Parakeets’ mixes a guitar-driven Yeasayer sound with Talking Heads vocals. Although some of their tracks are short and snappy, they’re not afraid to experiment at will either and it will be fun to watch the band rise in the same manner that The Strokes did.
