    FEARS RTE 2FM SESSION

    Fears underline so many things that are good about music these days. Formed from a life-long friendship, and a wide ranging appreciation of music, Fears write music at night time, capturing the essence and intimacy of the early hours.The band forge a blend of reflective melodies, soft vocals, and unconventional drum beats, creating an ethereal and atmospheric sound.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: ANNA CALVI, KILL KRINKLE CLUB, & DAN LE SAC VS SCROOBIUS PIP

    Making your second album is rarely an easy task, but Anna Calvi doesn’t sound like she had much difficulty with album ‘One Breath’. It’s a number of cohesive steps on from her impressive 2011 debut. Her powerful vocals and guitar playing mix well with the unorthodox song arrangements. There’s a swagger here too; not arrogance, just confidence in strong, strong songs.

    It’s another album number two, this time from Irish/Swedish duo Kill Krinkle Club. Dark electro pop is one of the numerous descriptions that KKC have picked up since forming a few years ago. They have an ability of writing quirky tunes that have an identity all of their own. 'Oxen Of The Sun' is a mighty return for them; one which is worth getting to know.

    The dastardly duo, the word & sound attack, the two men that we know as Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip are back. ‘Repent Replenish Repeat’ finds the duo back in top form; fusing words with sounds, and rarely falling short of their own high standards. How far can they bring this? As far as they like...
