Emanuel and the Fear, Lonely Christmas Review
Emanuel and the Fear is a Brooklyn-based collective of musicians with backgrounds in contemporary classical, metal, jazz, and folk music who all happen to play rock music. Their debut LP, Listen (2010), features a 30-piece electro/orchestral sound, in recent years they have pared their personnel down to six core players, based around principal songwriter, Emanuel Ayvas. In support of Listen, Emanuel and the Fear toured extensively in Europe, all while developing the songs that made up their second EP, Hands (2011). By the end of January of 2012, Emanuel and the Fear had crisscrossed Europe again to workshop the material that would become their second LP, the self-produced The Janus Mirror (2012). 2016 saw the release of a more succinct “classic pop” album Primitive Smile. Now in 2018, freshly released on November 23, 2018 a new holiday track “Lonely Christmas,” is just in time to fill your stockings. That’s the short of it!
