Along with the news, the band share an anthem-of-a-single ‘Fear‘, accompanied by a mystically triumphant video directed by Eleanor Petry.
About ‘Fear’, Chastity Belt member Lydia Lund says: “I wrote the song a few summers ago based around a dream I had. At one point in the dream, I was opening door after door, noticing the fear build, then dissipate upon opening, then build again when I realised there was yet another door. It felt like my dream was giving me practice in noticing my fear as something separate from the thing causing the fear, as something potentially more harmful and unbearable.
About a year later I was recording vocals out at my parents’ place. My mum knocked on the door – ‘is there anything you want to talk to me about? Is there something you’re afraid of?’ At that point I’d become so detached from the lyrics of the song it took me a minute to realize she thought I was doing some kind of primal scream therapy. And I guess in a way I am.”
