As they continue to work on their crowd funded second album, alternative rock band Strange Fiction have released new single Icarus’ Last Night as a potent teaser and nudge to those still wanting to get involved in their upcoming full-length. The single is a dynamic and rousing proposal fuelled with emotive vocals and spicy melodic enterprise around an imaginative weave of rhythmic and anthemic textures; or to put it simply, an attention grabbing proposition.
Based in London and Barcelona, Strange Fiction emerged in 2014 consisting of vocalist Carlos Palacio, guitarist Sergi Venteo, bassist Marc Martínez, and drummer Joel Marco. The following year saw the band release their very well-received debut album Orange, its arrival subsequently backed by successful tours across Britain and Spain. Now as the band finish off its successor, Icarus’ Last Night, though taken from the first, is laying the seeds to a potentially bigger focus on the new album and the continuation of raising new appetites for their ripe sound which is said to draw on varied inspirations ranging from Incubus and Red Hot Chili Peppers through to Bruno Mars.
Icarus’ Last Night opens on the laid back caress of synths before being joined by the more forceful touches of rhythms and riffs. The swinging beats of Marco soon has body and feet bouncing as eighties scented synths dance around the expressive tones of Palacio, his prowess backed with equal harmonic potency by the band. The dark hues of Martínez’ bass further entices ears and imagination as flirtatiously as the sonic enterprise springing from Venteo’s guitar strings; every element of the band uniting for a track which becomes more boisterous and rousing with every pungent note and syllable.
An inescapable ear pleaser, it is easy to assume Icarus’ Last Night is a live crowd arousing incitement too and right now offering plenty of bait to keenly anticipate the band’s upcoming album.
