The Fictions are a pretty awesome Sunny, Southern-California, Beach Boys-inspired sort of band. I like them a lot. Their music is nothing new (indeed, the most remarkable thing about their sound is that is really sounds like it is from the 60s), but it is perfect if you want to listen to that kind of music. Hear to several of their songs at their Myspace page.
Tha band seems to have grand aspirations. They sound like they're shooting for a more produced sound, but for some reason never achieve their goal. And it is mostly due to this shortcoming that the Fictions falls short. If they fully embraced the talent that they so obvious have, and the ear that they have for excellent poppy music, they would have an sure shot at indie-rock stardom. I want to see them become successful!
