Stream two new tracks from Brighton jangle-pop band Fear Of Men, “Alta/Waterfall”

Their new album's out April 22nd.

- Feb 3, 2014

Fear Of Men's predilection for religious iconography meshes well with the Brighton group's sonic aesthetic: jangle-pop that's too rooted in universal truths to ever be totally maudlin. They've just released two new tracks: "Alta," a 50 second organ-and-vox aria, and "Waterfall," a relative gear-shift back to tastefully rallying guitars and a plunge into the mercury of interpersonal relations; as it fades to entreaties of "take me to the waterfall," distortion envelopes the song and becomes its focus. It's a tragedy of sorts, like the noise of a surrounding world encroaching on a simple, passionate request, obfuscating and eventually overcoming it.

Fear Of Men's new album Loom is out April 22nd on Kanine Records.
