More information: This Bristol based quintet formed in 2007 and feature Maria Charles (vocals, guitar), James Green (bass), James McKeown (guitar), Matt Rich (keyboards), Adrian Searle (drums & percussion).
Their early gigs saw Hi Fiction Science perform motorik, Kosmiche influenced instrumental workouts with a nod to Cluster, Neu! and Can. With the addition of singer Maria Charles - formerly of Bristol experimentalists Fuzz Against Junk - the band took a direction that filters Acid-Folk, Art Rock, Post-Punk and Electronica. Their self-titled debut album was released independently on their own imprint Negative Drive Records and they released a 7" single - a cover of the Third Ear Band's 'Fleance'.
Hi Fiction Science now return with their sophomore, self-produced album ‘Curious Yellow’ - an album of original material that further defines the band’s unique sound and optimises the haunting and soaring vocal talents of Maria Charles.
The album was recorded in Bristol at State of Art Studio and mixed with Jim Barr (Get The Blessing / Portishead). "Curious Yellow” is a sensory provoking and memorable album.
