Songs created in the shadow of terror and loss that still crackle and pop with defiance, ‘Fear Fear’ is a record made for agitating and dancing, for heart and soul, for here, now and tomorrow. It’s a record that explores juxtaposition; of life and death, acceptance and isolation, environment and humanity, hope and despair, the real world and the digital world. That top to bottom rigour, the complete vision, is what makes the second album from Working Men’s Club such a stunning and unique achievement.
Making the busy feel finessed and the dreadful feel magical, ‘Fear Fear’ manages those feats, and then some. Or, as Syd Minksy-Sargeant puts it, “We just set out to make the best-sounding album we could.”
‘Fear Fear’ was produced by Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, MIA, Tricky) and recorded at Orton’s studio in Sheffield.
Initial LP copies pressed on pink vinyl. Also available to independent retailers on white vinyl LP
