The enticing sound of a neon-lit metropolis after midnight. Electronic rock tense as a spring. Romantic post punk with plenty of power. The duo Schwarze Fiktion encapsulates in their sound both tight minimalism and roaring grandeur — with references to Danish Trentemøller, Canadian Suuns and American The Soft Moon, among others. Characterised by majestic synth textures, heavy bass lines, atmospheric guitar figurations and vocals alternating between deep bass and falsetto, the band’s expression inspires introspection as well as dancing. Live on the stage Schwarze Fiktion nest their music in a series of evocative visuals as backdrop to the melodious and immersive soundscapes.
