Fear of Men - "Alta / Waterfall"

Fear of Men Loom

We've been enamored of the Brighton, UK group Fear of Men since their 2013 singles collection Early Fragments, and we're excited that they're gearing up to release their first real LP Loom this year - you'll get pretty psyched too if you sample "Alta" and "Waterfall," the record's intro and second track and the first two the band have offered up for us to sample. Jess Weiss's smart lyrics and lovely, sometimes Kate Bush-ian vocals get layered over a sweeping, maximalist backdrop; the end product sometimes recalls 10,000 Maniacs in the best way. "Waterfall" has definitely got our vote for one of the best songs of the year so far - we can't wait to hear more from this record. Check out the songs and remember you can pick up Loom in full on April 22.
