Hot Press Magazine - Ireland
"Band to watch!"
Early Audio Fiction self titled debut album reviews
reviews summary

Three Star Smash
Like "Garbage and No Doubt fell into a rusted blender from the ’80s. Their self-titled debut froths over with sunny, effortless melody tempered with biting, scandalous lyrics and an infectious attitude.....Double X chromosome swagger and Siouxsie peek-a-boos tag team the slick, and at times face-melting guitar, such as on the Hendrixian octave madness of standout “Kite High's” soaring licks"

MeetnowLive.com
"'Suffocate,' ...is absolutely menacing!!! Kristin gives such a powerful performance while at times sounding vulnerable..... This band can be sweet times, but if you mess with them, they WILL throw a chair in your face.

Two One Five Magazine
Audio Fiction’s self-titled debut brings plenty of bluesy punch and slick professionalism to a … set of festival-ready modern rock songs

Popwreckoning
"Audio Fiction’s self-titled Audio Fiction has the recipe for success...There are moments where the star quality of the album does shine through"

Rock is Life
Audio Fiction can be a little punk, a little ska, or a little rock and roll. No matter how you refer to their musical style, their latest release is sure to get you off your feet and moving to their hypnotic rhythms and radiant vocals.

Upon the release of their last teaser EP, the band has also received a ton of critical acclaim in a variety of online and print outlets - from The New York Daily News, The New York Post and The Village Voice, to The Hollywood Reporter and Time Out New York, to Gothamist.com and Stereogum. Ireland's music bible Hot Press Magazine, named them "band to watch."

In his rare moments not playing drums, the drummer has become a favorite of the New York gossip columnists from the New York Post's Page Six to The Daily News Rush & Molloy columns, getting snagged for everything from his appearance in HBO's new "Taxicab Confessions – New York, New York", to a run-in's with dictator Imelda Marcus and The Strokes with Drew Barrymore.

Lyrics

Race the Hourglass

Written By: Audio Fiction

here I go I'm on my way
won't look back until I see it through
the time has come the time to shine
silver girl sail on by

but time stand still
i don't want to go too fast
i just wanna do everything
i don't want to race with the hourglass

in the clouds my head is in
in too deep in too deep
soaring high and dreaming big
is there any other way to live

remember when you were a kid
and all the world was your playpen
it's the same but harder i admit
life is what you make of it

but time stand still
i don't want to go too fast
i just wanna do everything
i don't want to race with the hourglass

Time stand still (outro)

Way Out

Written By: Audio Fiction

People
Always busy talking
Talking about nothing
But nothing ever comes

Dead ends
Running round in circles
Running into road blocks
And running out of steam

Ooh ooh, looking for a way out
Ooh ooh, people on the way down

While we both remember what it means to love
We both know we've got to get out while we're young
If we expect to find a way for this to last
Then you know we better think of something fast

Searching
Looking for a reason
Something to hold on to
A thought to keep you warm

Blood drains
A tingle in your fingers
Is telling you this weather
Is never gonna change

Ooh ooh, looking for a way out
Ooh ooh, people on the way down

While we both remember what it means to love
We both know we've got to get out while we're young
If we expect to find a way for this to last
Then you know we better think of something fast
Then you know we better think of something

Ooh ooh, looking for a way out
Ooh ooh, people on the way down, oh
Ooh ooh, looking for a way out
Ooh ooh, people on the way down

Wishful Thinking

Written By: Audio Fiction

© Audio Fiction (F. O’Sullivan, Fong, O’Toole)

Verse 1
Every day is something new
The words I wanna to say to you
But I don’t know what to do
I whisper to you
Meaning you’ll never hear,
a side note dead to my fear
my feelings for you skewed
my dear

Pre chorus
You are taken
I can see
But are you happy
without me?
without me?

Chorus
Wishful thinking
You’re here with me
I’m wishful thinking
You’re here with me tonight

Verse 2
Standing in front of you
I’m not a ghost
I’m not a fool
walking by you,
I’m so afraid of
what I won’t do
these feelings inside of me
whip me like a wet sea breeze
I’m the vision
you don’t see
The mirror
Is empty

Pre chorus
You are taken
I can see
But are you happy
without me?
without me?

slow part
If I shout
would you hear?
If I told you that I love you
You’d never even know
If I walk right next to you,
Would you even look?
I don’t know

(Like) Dead footsteps
in the snow
I’m the flower
that won’t grow
in a garden
you don’t even own

Because ….I’m….

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

Chorus
Wishful thinking
(You’re) here with me
I’m wishful thinking
(You’re) here with me tonight
