STRANGE FICTION's debut single: Josephine Monday, 13 October 2014 19:32 by madseason
Strange Fiction - Josephine

An indie pop-rock/synth-rock band to keep an eye on: Strange Fiction are the new project of Nathan Medina, formerly of The Canvas Waiting.

Medina began writing songs that would become Strange Fiction close to two years ago. "As the rock band I was touring with came to an end, I started writing songs that were going in a new direction. I have always been a fan of 80's music and loved the textures and layers of the synths in that era. I picked up a Juno-60 and that keyboard has really shaped the core of these new songs." states Medina.

Strange Fiction just released the awesome "Josephine", the first in a series of singles they will be releasing this fall and into 2015. Stream "Josephine" on SoundCloud now clicking on the image on the left.

Marina And The Diamonds - Froot

It's not a secret I have a fondness for Welsh singer-songwriter Marina Lambrini Diamandis, better known by her stage name Marina and The Diamonds, so I can't help but post the news of her new single "Froot".

The new single was released yesterday, on Marina's 29th birthday: it's the titkle-track of the upcoming new album, to be unleashed in December. The song was written by Marina, with production by David Kosten and Miss Diamandis herself.
