Fear Of Men’s Video for “Sane” is One of the Most Beautiful You'll Watch This Year

Clear your schedule because you'll probably end up replaying it so many times it becomes a feature length film.

I've said it before and I shall say it again: Fear Of Men are one of the most interesting bands in the UK right now. They released their second album Fall Forever earlier this year and it refines their artful balance of emotionally charged lyrics framed by metallic, almost cold sounding instrumentation. Their new video for "Sane", which we're premiering below, is a perfect visual manifestation of that balance.


Beginning with frontperson Jessica Weiss climbing on top of a stone table strewn with a strange collection of objects, "Sane" plays on Fall Forever's strong themes of passion and violence. Through a surreal narrative that looks a bit like Secret Garden meets Daisies, it deals with the forces of perception and control - taking the internal struggle of navigating a world that suddenly looks and feels different, and turning it inside out.

Give it a watch below, but make sure you have some time to spare because you'll probably end up replaying it so many times it becomes a feature length film.
