Hi-Fiction Science rose from the ashes of masters of drone Suncoil Sect in 2008. Early gigs in their native Bristol saw Hi-Fiction Science perform motorik, instrumental workouts with a nod to Neu! and Can. Since the addition of singer Maria Charles - formerly of Bristol experimentalists Fuzz Against Junk - the band have taken a direction that fuses Acid Folk, Kraut/Artrock, Post-Punk and Electronica.
Hi-Fiction Science have just completed recording their debut album at Toybox studios with Ali Chant (PJ Harvey/John Parish/Warp etc). A review of early recorded material prompted Shindig magazine to cite HFS as a band to watch in 2010.
They have released one 7" single - a cover of the Third Ear Band's 'Fleance' on the Fuits de Mer label, (A future folk rock rarity - Terrascope Magazine) which promptly sold out of it inital pressing after the band received airplay from Stuart Maconie on the Freakzone on BBC 6Music and Tom Robinson's Introducing.
Their debut album was independently released in April 2011 on their own imprint 'Negative Drive Records'
