Introducing LEOPOLD AND HIS FICTION: Well Executed High Fidelity Lo-Fi


Hey guys! Please introduce yourselves to FM readers:

US-based rock band. From Detroit, with extended stay in San Francisco,  currently in Austin, TX. Enjoys the wonders of plants and cement fairly equally.

What’s your new single ‘It’s How I Feel’, all about?

Punk roots, minimal, overtly blatant, a strong regard for getting what we want when we want it, in a caring/nurturing way.

The single also comes with a great video and there are even puppets involved! How did that idea come about?

We make our videos and record a lot of our music. One idea spins into the next in our version of Existential planning at its finest. Making life out of lemonade. The puppets seemed like a good idea to someone at one time or another and it turned out our tour manager had a hidden puppet talent that made for exceptional content. That being said, we aim to entertain ourselves. We keep extremely busy and for As long as we can successfully entertain ourselves between tours we maintain an exceptional focus.

Describe your sound in five words:

Well executed high fidelity lo-fi.

Who are you biggest influences?


What’s the music scene like in Austin at the moment, any artists you’d recommend?

Locked down. The whole world is on one side of the fence or the other. Austin and its music scene is no exception. Some people make music for fame and money some people do it as a coping mechanism. Austin teeters on a fine line. We love Black Pumas, but who doesn’t? We are invested in Jane Ellen Bryant. White Denim for the win.

How have you been coping since the start of lockdown?

Making ridiculous and elaborate videos. Writing, recording. New album right around the corner. Spending a lot of time in West Texas. As a city boy from Detroit, I’ve had a full change of heart of all the chinches bored in to my subconscious about Texas. It’s a good place.

What are your plans for the rest of 2020?

Same as above. Glad to have the down time to focus.

If you could collaborate with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?
