about

Fiction – Straw Bear's third long player – is 'set to become a cult classic' according to Clash, and is run through with the surreal lyricism and jangling guitars that have defined the band's sound.

Fiction follows their second, Black Bank, which caused an unexpected stir at the BBC for its songcraft, bizarre lyrics and folksy evocation of the band’s native Cambridgeshire Fens. Bob Harris, Cerys Matthews and Tom Robinson were happy to share their enthusiasm for the band on-air.

Recorded over a series of sprawling weekend sessions in the band’s own studio in rural Essex, Straw Bear took complete control over this album, producing Fiction’s ten genre-bending tracks themselves.

With special thanks to Sam Inglis for mixing Augusta De La Rue.
