Bastette release video for “Fiction”, EP coming soon

Blackburn-based alt-rock artist Bastette shares brand new single “Fiction”, out 14th September on all streaming platforms. The track is taken from forthcoming EP Awakening, out 30th September and the video is available to stream by scrolling down.

“Fiction” actually began life as a dark, sultry, piano ballad, but took on a new life once a drum kit and a Gibson got involved. Combining kiss-n-tell-storytelling that would make Stevie Nicks proud with the swagger of Lzzy Hale, the track explodes with a sassy panache that would put any love rat firmly in their place!

Speaking of the track, vocalist Caroline Kenyon says:

“Fiction” is about falling in love with a rockstar. What you see on stage is often the alter ego and perception isn’t quite reality. Every person has a fantasy of what they want from a lover and vice versa…. This is mine!

The track was recorded, along with the rest of upcoming EP Awakening at The Lounge, Wigan with producer Gareth Nuttall. With influences ranging from Guns n’ Roses to Lady Gaga, the EP offers a blend of catchy pop melodies effortlessly laid upon a solid rock core.
