Songs created in the shadow of terror and loss, but that crackle and pop with defiance, wrestled into being over one of the most extraordinary years in recent history. Ideas born of pandemic and isolation, but that demand sharing and then celebration. A statement of desperation, but also of intent. Of two-fingers anger, and two-footed celebration.
The complete vision, that top-to-bottom rigour, is what makes the second album from Working Men’s Club such a stunning and totally unique achievement. This is Fear Fear, a record made for agitating and dancing, for heart and soul, for here, now and tomorrow.
Catch them at Manchester Academy this December. With support from SCALPING and Gabe Gurnsey (Factory Floor) DJ Set
