Icky Blossoms' "Living in Fiction" reminds me of the Faint—which makes sense, since Icky Blossoms hail from the same Nebraska state that the Faint did, and they're releasing records on the label the Faint did as well, Saddle Creek. This tune is a little sweeter than the Faint's corroded electro-punk, but it still has plenty of bite. It's from the band's new LP, Mask, out May 14. "'Living In Fiction' came about in the summer heat of 2014," the band told FADER via email. "We were playing around on an acoustic guitar on Nik's roof in Omaha, NE when out popped the melody. A weirdo pop jam for cruising around, messing around, night swimming, and ______. You ever get the feeling you've been cheated?" All the time, Icky Blossoms—all the time.
