Fiction is an indie pop quartet from London, England that came together in 2009 after the four bandmates had successfully proven their musical prowess as members of other bands. Drawing from the post-punk and psychedelic genres, Fiction manages to synthesize a particularly interesting sound that many are starting to tag as "awkward pop." Moreover, there is a certain intellectual bent to the quartet's songwriting philosophy, where the members prefer to focus on heavy existential issues concerning identity and the concept of "fiction" itself, as opposed to the lighter, more happy-go-lucky fare that tends to dominate the lyrical spectrum of indie pop these days. Despite the fact that the band has only released a few singles thus far, Fiction's sparse recorded output speaks volumes towards its members' reputations as top-notch performers and songwriters.
