Emanuel and The Fear

Emanuel and The Fear are only asking one thing from you, the listener: Listen.

How appropriate is it then that the debut album from the 11-piece (yes, 11) orchestral pop group from New York is titled just that. Listen.
The band takes influence from a little band called Arcade Fire, and it shows directly in their sound. Instead of being a carbon-copy under a different name, though, they take the style and put their own unique twist to it and the result is something that is arguably better than AF. It's like when you see a set of twins, and realize that one of them has a special something that just sets them apart from the other.

Truly this is one of the undiscovered gems lying around there in the world, and it's a damn shame. So give it a listen and support the artists you enjoy!
