Dark, loungey swagger from the Steel City of Sheffield, England. Come on over and hear our stories but, don't stray from the path...
Braver than Fiction was named after a lyric from one of our songs, There's a Time for Silence and initially formed as a studio project during the summer of 2013. When our debut track, Your Little Fantasy began receiving significant interest online, we 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; straying from the path...
"If you stray from the path for one instant, the wolves will eat you. They are grey as famine, they are as unkind as plague." - Angela Carter, The Company of Wolves
We have encountered many wolves but we are never prey; our changeling line-up remains inconstantly 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. We have always resisted labeling our species of murky, quirky storytelling but, when pressed, we tend to go with dark, loungey swagger; if you are still none the wiser then stop reading and start listening.
