PRAISE for LOOM

“A graceful exhibition of light melody over dark mood” Q MAGAZINE (4 stars)

“The more people who discover Jessica Weiss’s haunting songs and Fear of Men’s classic indie sound the better” THE SUNDAY TIMES

“A set of songs as effortlessly enjoyable as they are smart, as inspired as they are hopeless.” ALL MUSIC GUIDE (4 1/2 out of 5)

“At the intersection of light and dark, dreams and waking, art and music, there lies Fear of Men.” CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“Psychological trauma aside, there’s a warmth to Weiss’ soft, sighing vocals and Daniel Falvey’s rippling guitar textures that lifts ‘Loom’ to the heavens.” NME 8/10

“Striking a smart balance between effortless pop and over-thought melancholia” ONION AV CLUB

“Loom is a beautifully fragile album.” THE 405 (UK)

“With ‘Loom’, Fear of Men have created something more than mere fragments; a record which could engulf you if you give it chance; where sounds and textures merge together to create a beautifully bleak story.” THIS IS FAKE DIY 4 out of 5

“This is the rare offering of post-Smiths jangle that doesn’t rely on pomp or posturing” UNDER THE RADAR MAGAZINE 8/10
