Published Feb 01, 2008Let Me Be Fictional, a documentary about Vancouver indie rockers, Ladyhawk, is making rounds in the festival circuit before its wider release set for later in '08. The film seems to be focused primarily on the recording process of the band's second album, Shots, and the vast amount of sangria consumed during it, but the press release hints at everything from details on the band's origin to their thoughts on "society's view of what makes a functioning adult," and what it's like to use a bucket as a urinal.
The group of four 25-to-29 year-old rural British Columbians formed Ladyhawk in their adopted home of Vancouver in 2003. Seeking a return to their roots, the band headed home to Kelowna where they rented an old gutted farmhouse for the recording of Shots. An escape from their regular lives, this unique environment apparently increased the atmospheric tone of Ladyhawk's songs and definitely provided the aforementioned experience with a piss bucket.
