It all started when Ed Cares, one of West London's most in-demand male nannies, was overheard humming a song he had written, by Katie, aged six, who persuaded him to form a band. Josh, eight, boldly proclaimed: "You're probably my second favourite artist after Katy Perry."
Their debut EP, Made Simple, released earlier this year, earned them all sorts of tastemaker acclaim and national radio play. Prestigious UK tastemakers DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Wonderland and The 405 all tipping the group as one’s to watch.
With a sling of festivals, including the legendary Reading and Leeds, and a recent Radio 1 Maida Vale session tucked safely under their belts, the band’s vivid and visceral live show has gone from strength to strength. Affirming this, thequartet set out on their first ever headline tour through November, finishing with a sold out show at the Lexington in an emphatic expression of their place as one of the most exciting new bands this country has to offer.
The quartet is completed by Emma Topolski (Bass, Vocals), Rich Legate (Guitar, Backing Vocals) and Glyn Daniels (Drums, Backing Vocals).
Simple Fiction combine everything you know and love about indie rock and reinvent it in a familiar yet new exterior. They combine melancholy lyrics with uplifting and catchy choruses that resonate with fans of every variation of indie.
LongDayLateNight are the band to watch for 2018 - with 2 EPs and a range of London gigs already under their belt, they are definitely one to watch
