Leopold and his Fiction is the honest and transcendent San Francisco area Rock n’ Roll band escalating into the west coast music scene. Their sound acquires a moody pop frame derived from distant genres and unwavering imagination in an attempt to reinvent what each member feels has dissipated from the greater measure of music. Leopold and his Fiction is the balanced reincarnate of a sultry era of western darkness underneath big city lights and country back roads leading to the morning shore of a transpiring musical horizon.
Essentially a rock duo, Leopold and his Fiction also implement other musicians and instruments as needed.
Both individuals contribute to a very diverse sound through personal interests.
Ben hails all the way out from country Kentucky with a healthy obsession for jazz. Formulating beats through reason and tobacco tinged dialects, he radiates a calm versatility and explosive composure behind his drum set.
Daniel provides a Detroit filth encapsulated in boogaloo blues, a homeless train ride blinded by distance. Guitar oriented and rasped vocals soar to a grave reflection, a sweet relief of seasons bask in their familiarity.
Together they offer a morbid cohesion of California and a gentle open plains reminiscence stimulating a reason and energy for people to listen closely. They are taking SF through a tempest of a new new vision in music and thought with an alternate take to the repetition of a-sides with their own traditional sounds and elaborations.
"San Francisco pop duo Leopold and His Fiction—aside from having a cool name—are pretty damn good. They have their White Stripes-y vocal arrangements, their indierock strumming, and a few guitar riffs that wouldn't be out of place on a Lynyrd Skynyrd album. They do more than inspire the lame name-dropping of other bands, however—namely, they'll make you nod your head and tap your toes. EH"
--The Portland Mercury, Up & Coming
