The emerging Leeds-based 5-piece FEHM have announced a series of live dates in the UK along with the release of their new song ‘Blue Hour’ as the band build towards their debut album, set for release later this year.
The quintet have quickly found praise for their incredible synthesized post-new-wave sound, and composite influences from Depeche Mode, Tears For Fears and Soft Cell.
FEHM’s live shows have been praised for captivating performance and a roughened sound palette, with the band planning to tour extensively this year.
Produced by Matt Peel at Nave Studios, the new material is another great step forward for the group in both sound and arrangement, and the new track ‘Blue Hour’ takes up the theme of someone who seems divided in the middle and who turns out to be someone else entirely, as described by Paul Riddle of the band;
“The blue hour is the transitional period between day and night, or light and dark if you will. This represents the overall metaphor within the song. The song is about someone being split in half, just like the blue hour, eventually falling deeper into darkness. Nothing lasts forever.”
‘Blue Hour’ is released through FEHM’s own imprint ‘Everything Has Meaning’ this February 1st. Stream below . FEHM’s debut album will follow later in 2019 and the band will hit the road in early 2019 on the dates below. The new track is whirling and penetrating with heavy-eyed vocals and demonstrative keys.
FEHM are Paul Riddle (vocals), Amy Fishlock (bass), Chris Lodge (drums), Darren Lord (synth, and Ben Holmes (guitar)
