Newbie Brighton lo-fi pop outfit, Fear of Men, offer a grounded, Galaxie 500-slanted b-side in the build-up to their debut LP Loom set to drop in April. Enchanting lead vocals – aurally somewhere between The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Warpaint – intertwine seamlessly with the entrancingly paced goings-on of the instrumental track.
The song is rife with clear sonic reference points and not just through the ostensibly Galaxie-inspired drumline. The niched employment of rung-out guitars in this particular context is evidence of a troupe indulging their artistic inclinations in an mbv era.
