Rising Brighton duo Para Fiction have returned with rapid-fire new single ‘No Comment’, out on Friday 27th September via Parasitic.
A high-energy dose of no-frills punk, ‘No Comment’ tackles themes of freedom and questioning authority. It follows on from July’s ‘Time Debt’, a grippingly fresh-sounding single that carries a similar message and urgency. Both tracks will feature on Para Fiction’s forthcoming sophomore EP ‘Episode 2’.
Drawing comparisons to classic-era Beastie Boys, the DIY duo is made up of rapper James (aka Jambo) and producer Jules (Master Fado) who both grew up playing in punk rock bands, before they first met at a drum and bass night. After self-releasing their debut EP ‘Episode 1: L££CH RIDDEN’ on their label Parasitic earlier this year, the 21-year-olds swiftly won support from Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1.
Having already shared the stage with the likes of JPEGMafia, Black Josh and Skinnyman, Para Fiction found themselves sharing the stage with fellow riotous duo Slaves earlier this month at Dreamland Margate. It capped off a busy summer that has seen them perform at Boomtown, Wilkestock Festival and a raucous House of Vans event in London.
This winter, the pair will be supporting Kent-based band Lady Bird on their 14-date UK tour, which includes shows in Southampton, Edinburgh, Margate, Bournemouth and York.
Another uncompromising single, Para Fiction are a duo determined to leave their mark on the scene.
