I'm glad you've picked up on Fear of Men, I have seen them a bunch of times in London and Brighton in the last couple of years and they are a very good band. The guitarist makes quite a unique sound. After a few listens to the album I still think their collection of early singles, called Early Fragments, is better. It's also on Spotify and I'd really recommend checking it out, especially the track 'Ritual Confession'.
