Here’s short fiction for the Pittsburgh band Short Fictions. If a viral tweet claiming 2019 as “the last season of America” were to come true at any point in the next few months, that untimely end might be more than the sum of its parts.
With an expansive lineup of multi-instrumentalists and a fair share of genre alchemy, Short Fictions unravels the fabric of what the end of times means for us in the right now on Fates Worth Than Death, their most calculated and focused work yet. By attaching cinematic weight to tales of climate change, both external and internal, this East Coast outfit has become a force of nature that pushes against giving in to anything bigger than a packed basement. Welcome to the neighborhood.
PERSPECTIVE, A LOVELY HAND TO HOLD
Sounds like cheeseburgers.
