It’s easy to see what would make Fear of Men work: sweet harmonies, a gorgeous vocal delivery and an easy going beat. But scratch a little that sumptuous surface and you can find all kinds of subtexts.
Fear of Men are a band that clearly love art, let’s remember the marble coloured vinyl for Early Fragments (‘Seer’ ruled) and the use of artistic imagery in their videos. I probably enjoy them lots because they remember me of The Sundays, only a little more melancholic. We’ve recommended them previously for last year’s Nrmal and SXSW. We also caught them live last year.
