It’s shaping up to be another good year for fans of synth-pop geniuses Fiat Lux, who follow-up 2019’s long awaited Saved Symmetry with a brand new studio album Twisted Culture due on 5th November and a couple of rare live dates to follow at Halifax’s Workshop Theatre (30th October) and Birmingham’s Blue Orange Theatre (13th November).
We caught up with the band’s singer Steve Wright and multi-instrumentalist / producer David P Crickmore to ask them about their favourite things from the world of music, TV, literature and film.
