Fear of Men es un quinteto británico afincado a medias entre Londres y Brighton de la que he encontrado este single que aparece en el sello Italian Beach Babes, un pequeño netlabel con distribución limitada. Se trata de un tema de Fuzzy-Pop con trazas noventeras al estilo Sarah Records. Puedes escucharlo y descargarlo directamente desde su Bandcamp o pinchando en el enlace.
Fear of Men are Jessica, Daniel, Lin and Antony. They’re currently split between houses in London and Brighton.
This is a long distance relationship that works. While there’s a touch of indie pop in there we’re totally entranced by the moodier side of Fear of Men. Our favourite, ‘Green See’ is Warpaint grungepop and ‘Phantom Limb’ echoes in all the right places.
Five Things We Know
1. The band started as an art project based on Diedre Bair’s biography of French Author Anais Nin. If that sounds a bit highbrow for you, don’t worry. The band has changed a bit since then.
2. Fear of Men really got going when one of the band made Jessica a mix tape full of 90′s rock (Eric’s Trip) and woozy instrumentalists like Grouper.
3. Like any good lo-fi band, the first demos were recorded at Jessica’s Mum’s house with Dan (Guitar). They used them to – in their own words – “lure in extra members”.
4. They want to make pop music while thinking about Werner Fassbinder films, forests, afflictions of the flesh and Ancient Egypt.
