fomKanine Records – June 3rd

Fear of Men’s debut record, 2014’s Loom, was a delicately beautiful and quietly brilliant gem that didn’t ever quite receive the adoration it so thoroughly deserved, so you would hardly blame the Brighton band if they’d felt forced to shake things up with album number two. Thankfully they’ve resisted. Fall Forever subtly builds on the shadowy moods of their previous material, adding touches of dark, bassy, electronic experimentation and drum effects while continuing to pour the same level of thought, care and attention to detail into the production and subtleties of their work that they always have. As a result, Fear of Men have made a stunning record that – fingers crossed – will earn them that little extra bit of adoration this time round.
