Braver than Fiction
About Braver than Fiction
“Gorgeous stuff. If you'd like to hear more, I'd strongly recommend it.” Christian Carlisle, BBC Introducing Sheffield Named after a lyric from one of their songs, Sheffield band Braver than Fiction initially formed as a studio project during the summer of 2013. When their debut track, “Your Little Fantasy" began receiving significant interest online, it was decided to venture out of the studio and into live venues. Of course, this was never meant to happen, but it did and now, here we are. Several band members have manifested during the band’s enigmatic career and the line-up remains tantalizingly mutable but whatever form it takes, comparisons continue to be drawn with the grotesque glamour of Tom Waits and the dysfunctional 'family' of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours incarnation. However, Braver than Fiction are still evolving and their brand of dark, loungey swagger continues to resist being pressed into any kind of predictable mould – for now.
