Check Out: Fear of Men – “Seer”

FEAR-OF-MEN-EARLY-FRAGMENTS
Listen to our FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2014. Make sure you don't miss any tunes: FOLLOW US ON TWITTER.

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.

Barring the few brilliant moments (and there are a few), Future Brown’s debut full-length feels tired and inconclusive.
