Video of the Moment #1899: Fictonian

Fictonian is the stage name of Glen Roberts, a mysterious multi-instrumentalist who recently (at least for a brief time anyway) became less mysterious when he went out on the road to support TGTF folk favourite Nick Mulvey. He will be releasing his debut album ‘Desire Lines’ – not to be confused with the Camera Obscura album of the same exact name – on the 13th of November.

Despite this date in the still far off future, Fictonian is already gaining quite a bit of buzz off the LP’s first single, ‘Little Black Book’. The single, whose release proper will be on the 18th of September, now has an accompanying single. Singer/songwriter Roberts manages to achieve such a beautifully full sound, even as a solo artist, with ‘Little Black Book’, and in the video, we get to follow a young girl being a kid, going exploring…in a way that too few kids do in these so-called technologically advanced times. The song is a delight, and so is the promo. Watch it below.
