fear of men
the gorgeous debut from the brightonians is strewn with warped & distorted Classical instrumentation, alongside musical saws & backwards guitars, giving a sense of the imperfect to the album’s pristine pop melodies.
The band flit between dire philosophical observations & listless melancholia, riding melodies so carefree that anguished sentiments come off more like dreamy sighs.The title of the album both alludes to the interweaving textures that run throughout the record & references the darkness that hovers above much of the band's output. Weiss broadcasts crippling disconnection, boredom & sexual dread with all the dour verve of a young Morrissey & the songs draw from a similar veing as broadcast, the pains of being pure at heart & warpaint.
