Fawn Spots Short Info

From Safer Place is the debut long-player from York-based punk trio Fawn Spots, to be released in March 2015 on Critical Heights.

Pulsating with a visceral tension, the album calls to mind the cathartic energy of Rites of Spring and Husker 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.

The album’s title captures the band’s existential angst and was borne out of the idea that growing older distances oneself from a place of security, propelling oneself into a position of ambivalence. This bittersweet transition – simultaneously daunting yet thrilling – is revealed musically throughout the album: just as becoming aware of oneself feels as if being ‘thrown’ into the world, From Safer Place thrusts you headfirst into its roaring surge.
