Emanuel and the Fear returned to Mercury + plans new release

Emanuel and the Fear returned to Mercury + plans new release

Capable of embedding theremin parts in folk songs and creating glam rock songs with Harry Nilsson-esque brass ensembles, NYC's band Emanuel And The Fear certainly doesn't lack imagination, painting lush orchestrations that verge on rock-opera. After a European tour this past December, Emanuel Ayvas's brainchild returned home to perform their first 2014 show at Mercury Lounge last Friday night. This band has gone through many changes both sonically and in terms of lineup, at one point having 11 members in its ranks. Since releasing their first self-titled debut EP in 2009, the sextet has gone on to release 3 records, none of which sounds alike. One trend we do notice is that their music has gotten progressively darker since 2010's 'Listen.' They have a new album in the works, so definitely keep an eye on them. Check out "The janus Mirror" below, title track from their latest EP released last year.
