Real Fears site Muna, Say Lou Lou and Sigrid as influences on their sound; you can certainly hear the result of that varied palette in their new single ‘You’. Low-key, minimal electronic moments are paired with indie swells to create a broad soundscape that pulls the listener in.
“Having given this project some thought, we wanted to go for a sound that used a lot of space and depth. Lyrically the song is about opening up about your feelings and anxieties with someone close to you, admitting when you were wrong and feeling better about things. So whilst the song is upbeat in the chorus, it’s about repairing a mistake in a relationship.” – Real Fears
