It seems an age since we saw or heard anything from the duo Fear Of Men playing at SxSW in Austin, and that was before they took a four year hiatus after the release of their sophomore album Fall Forever. With a new track ‘Into Strangeness’, our first song and video in 4 years We made the video ourselves during lockdown, co directed by Mikael Johansson. It’s inspired by 16th Century British witchcraft, uncanny dreamscapes and feminine power.

They are back with a new song, Into Strangeness, a sub-3 minute salvo tightly wound with a post-punk energy that recalls the likes of Section 25 and AR Kane. The song opens up with disorientating atonal saxophone, inspired by the opening credits of 70’s neorealist film Fear Eats the Soul, before Jessica Weiss’ vocals paint an ominous picture of tension, possession and affliction.

The band are donating their first week of sales via Bandcamp to The Audre Lorde Project, supporting LGBTQ+ People of Colour in the New York area.

Released July 1st, 2020
Words and music by Jessica Weiss and Daniel Falvey.
Drums by James Davies.
