New video from Fear of Men, featuring footage they shot on their recent U.S. tour, edited by the band’s own Daniel Falvey. “America” is taken from the albumLoom, one of our Best Albums of 2014.

Brighton, based Fear of Men is pleased to present their much anticipated debut album Loom for release in April on Kanine Records. The title of the album both alludes to the interweaving textures that run throughout the record and references the darkness that hovers above much of Fear of Mens output. Rather than simply marrying a handful of influences, Fear of Men designs their music from an almost uncomfortably personal place. Weiss broadcasts crippling disconnection, boredom and sexual dread with all the dour verve of a young Morrissey. The band flit between dire philosophical observations and listless melancholia, riding melodies so carefree that anguished sentiments come off more like lazy sighs.  Classical instrumentation appear throughout Loom, warped and distorted alongside musical saws and backwards guitars, giving a sense of the imperfect to the albums pristine pop melodies.
