After dusting off an old Roland synthesizer at a neighbor’s garage sale, Nathan Medina acquired an unexpected new source of musical inspiration. Drawing from his long love of narrative songwriting and appreciation for artists like Ryan Adams and Patty Griffin, he began to blend in the new, other-worldly sounds that sprang from the Juno-60’s oscillators.
The result was a brew of post-americana, nostalgic storytelling in a bed of synth-laden and reverb heavy soundscapes, a sound that Nathan and his collaborators, Colin Campbell and James Blair, quickly dubbed “Strange Fiction”. Strange Fiction blends synth-pop and rock elements while staying true to the song itself. "My favorite bands are those that, regardless of genre, are able to move you with their songwriting." states Medina.
Strange Fiction will release their first single, “Josephine”, on October 7th, 2014 via SoundCloud, with plans to continue the regular release of new tracks through the end of the year.
