Fear of Men was born when Jess (Vocals+ Guitar) had been writing and home recording ambient songs as soundtracks to short films and Daniel (Guitar) attended an exhibition of her work. The two started a project based on a shared love of melody and an eclectic mix of artists such as Eric’s Trip, Grouper, and The Pixies. The early demos created the ‘Hanna Shygulla Demos’, released by Sex Is Disgusting in February 2011, before the band’s debut 7”, ‘Ritual Confession’, was released on Italian Beach Babes in August of that year. The band self-released the ‘Alice Munro Demos’, which featured the acclaimed track ‘Doldrums’, in support of their co-headline tour around the UK with Bos Angeles. Joining Jess and Daniel in the group are Alex on bass and Mike on drums.
