Boomkat Product Review:
Yorkshire's Working Men's Club emulate early '80s electro pop on their sophomore album "Fear Fear".
The young band from Todmorden notched up plenty of acclaim for their self-titled 2020 debut, written when singer-songwriter (and de-facto frontman) Syd Minsky-Sargeant was just 16 years old. So "Fear Fear" is the sound of a band maturing; Minsky-Sargeant is now 20 and the sound of the band's second album is darker and more pointed. "I like the contrast of it being happy, uplifting music and really dark lyrics," he says. We don't know about that - the music presented here isn't exactly the Arctic Monkeys, although it was produced by that band's producer Ross Orton.
Nah, "Fear Fear" is rougher around the edges, all spiraling, broken oscillators and on-the-fritz drum machines with deranged acid squelches poking in-between the gaps. If you need a stylistic comparison, it's a bit like if the Lo Fidelity All Stars did a record of Depeche Mode covers. Yeah.
