Pittsburgh band Short Fictions‘ new album Oblivion Will Own Me and Death Alone Will Love Me (Void Filler) is their most all-over-the-place yet. It finds time for everything from sunny power pop to harsh screamo to lo-fi bedroom folk, sometimes in the same song, and Short Fictions pull all of it off.
Vocalist/guitarist Sam Treber says to us, “Oblivion Will Own Me and Death Alone Will Love Me (Void Filler) is our most fully realized work by a mile. It is the technical and emotional climax of a band that has been honing its craft for close to a decade. Baring hard hitting jammers, catchy pop hits, and soul wrenching emotionally, Oblivion Will Own Me… leaves, in my humble opinion, nothing to be desired. I hope you enjoy it.”
Oblivion… comes out tomorrow (10/6) via Lauren Records, but the whole thing gets an early premiere right here:
