"Green Sea" - new single from Fear of Men
Fear of Men has featured on these pages several times in the past 16 months. They are, quite simply, one of my favorite lo-fi pop groups. The group is Jess, Dan, Alex and Mike, two men and two women, split between Brighton and London. They are releasing their second 7", "Green Sea", June 18 on the Sexbeat label (pre-order link here). I understand that they will be touring with Best Coast soon, as well.
The single a great showcase for Fear of Men. Yearning, aching vocals, well-crafted instrumentation, urgent delivery and spot-on harmonies. The band is developing rapidly, and while we enjoy this song, we really look forward to more in the future.
