Men Fear The Green Sea
London via Brighton collective Fear Of Men should a helluva lot of potential last year due to their Alice Munro release (read/listen here). Next step in their march towards global submission (after changing their entire rhythm section!) is 'Green Sea', a track that has expanded their aesthetics in every conceivable direction - glossier production, more ambition, dexterous instrumentation (especially love the backwards guitar - a backwards guitar solo get me every time). There is more beauty in this track than whole albums from many of their contemporaries. I really hope these kids keep pushing this - it feels like they are building up to something quite special.
The Green Sea 7" will be out in June through Sexbeat - pre-order it here.
