Fear of Men
Brighton quartet Fear of Men approach records with fervent pointillism. Literally: the artwork for their last record, Early Fragments, was colored using tiny pixels. A band this meticulous usually isn't the kind to write sweeping, crystalline indie pop that's simultaneously saccharine and sinister. Then again, Fear of Men isn't your usual band. Their live set is equally as delicate as it is textured: almost like they forgot they're not a punk band. If melancholic lyricism and subtle melodies are your bag, look no further. Did we mention this show is free? That's a pretty good deal!
