    This is a new band for me. I love Jessica Weiss' deep lyrics and beautiful voice (reminds me a little of Delores O'Riordan, the Cranberries singer). The music is melodious and low key, but it's very exciting nonetheless. I sense some gothic undercurrents on this one also - even on the album cover. Wish the lyrics were included. Great album and recommended!

    Loom is an outstanding collection of sharp, smart pop-rock songs that also sweep over us in an involving way that can in the process wash away the feeling that I need to analyze or concretely pin down everything that’s going on.

    It's a graceful exhibition of light melody over dark mood. [Jun 2014, p.110]

    Fear of Men have arrived with a storybook in hand, one detailing personal pain with vivid, gentle clarity that should elevate it above any accusations of coyness.
