Speaking about the upcoming ‘Fear Fear’, Working Men’s Club frontman Syd Minsky-Sargeant discussed the record’s creation and themes in a statement.

“The first album [relased in 2020] was mostly a personal documentation lyrically,” he explained. “This is a blur between personal and a third-person perspective of what was going on.”

Minsky-Sargeant continued: “I like the contrast of it being happy, uplifting music and really dark lyrics. It’s not a minimal record, certainly compared to the first one. That’s because there’s been a lot more going on that needed to be said.”

In a five-star review of Working Men’s Club’s self-titled debut, NME wrote: “Cycling through the conflicting emotions that come from living in a society that’s set itself on fire, ‘Working Men’s Club’ is an attention-demanding debut that couldn’t have come at a better time.

“Hope, despair, destruction and the desire for new beginnings, their chaotic energy makes perfect sense in these strange times.”
