They might have a name like a riot grrl band, but prior to brand new single “Seer,” Brighton UK’s Fear of Men dropped a series of gorgeous tracks reminiscent of the sunny, nostalgic dream pop of bands like Beach Fossils or even Belle and Sebastian. They’re chronicling all those on an upcoming compilation called Early Fragments that’ll precede an as-yet-unannounced debut LP. “Seer” will figure on Early Fragments too, but it’s the band’s most textured song to date, with crashing distorted guitars, sublime vocals, even some mysterious woodwinds figured over woozy, brilliant loops of guitars and drums that remind us of Lotus Plaza. It has us excited to see what direction they’ll head in on that upcoming LP.
