Don't fear Emanuel and the Fear

Emanuel and the Fear are a collective comprised of eleven classically-trained musicians who have played and toured with the likes of Sufjan Stevens, The National, Akron/Family, and Bryan Scary & the Shredding Tears., and who, last month, released their debut self-titled EP in preparation for their debut LP, whose arrival date has yet to be announced. As you could expect from their background, the crowd of musicians does a remarkable job of presenting a melodic unified sound comprised of drums, bass, synthesizer, violin, guitar, flute, violin, cello, trombone, trumpet, and piano along with vocals in a sound that is certainly not classical. Below you'll find the lead off track for the EP, which is available now.

Visit their website, their label Paper Garden Records, and become their friend on MySpace.
