Polar is the most recent out bust by Hull based melodic post-hardcore act Late Night Fiction. Five tracks of intense early Biffy Clyro influenced alternative rock at its finest.
Following the success of two BBC introducing sessions and various shows with highly established acts proves that Late Night Fiction are onto something here. Songs such as closing track “Relax Please” could easily be an anthem for a new generation that is sang through out university basements and bars at the top of every punters lungs.
This is alternative hardcore but with a listenable feel that could be pumped out on main stream radio during the working day. It has enough angst to fit in with the attitude of today’s disenchanted youth but the musicality to sink into the heads of any music lover of any age.
With this beautiful EP to be released over the summer along with a full length album at the end of 2012 the guys in Late Night Fiction are a safe bet for greater things. If you like alternative rock, with hooks and angst then this is for you. 8.5/10
