Debut long-player from York-based Fawn Spots. Pulsating with a visceral tension, the album calls to mind the cathartic energy of Fugazi and Husk-er Du with the disparate post punk angularity of Joy Division and Mission of Burma; urgent and raw but keeping to a clear sense of melody.From Safer Place thrusts you headfirst into its roaring surge. Lyrically, main songwriter Jonathan Meager has produced his most challenging, personal and complete work to date, influenced by T. S. Eliot and Jean Paul Sartre amongst others. Jonathan pinpoints Fawn Spots ethos as one borrowed from Guy Debord and The Situationists to live without dead time, to be-come liberated from the everyday.With Jonathan Meager and Oliver Grabowski on vocals and guitars, and recent addition Paddy Carley on drums, Fawn Spots intention for their debut was to capture the band in its purest form. Recording and engineering the album themselves gave Fawn Spots the opportunity to capture the bands authenticity, an impression of which is best expressed in New Sense, a blistering evocation for a hidden world never exposed to reveal itself.
