Fade Out The Fear
Royal Stag Records
The indie-rock sensation with the voice described as the “best this side of the Atlantic” by the Sunday Times (who have a wine club) is back with the title track from his new album. Fade Out The Fear is written for people with mental health problems as fear is often a key player in these situations. If it’s not fear, it’s not knowing how to perceive the world around you or not trusting your own feelings which can be just as anxiety forming. Helping us to face the now with courage and dignity, Ewan Macfarlane’s Fade Out The Fear offers up an anthemic and inspiring rock number. The prolific and popular singer is working his way through the new repertoire with the recent success of You’re Wasted On Me carrying him forward into this latest song. As Ewan Macfarlane prepares for his Scotland tour, his music does the business and prepares for his arrival.
A chug of bluesy electric guitar brings out a beat that’s brought to life by a pounding drum riff. The music simmers down to give the vocals the centre stage as a rhythmic melody carries the voice over the stereo. Licks of blues guitar echo the sentiment as verse lines summon imagery of empowerment and laid-back confidence. A pulsing constant rhythm keeps the energy on the up as the music rises and drops with intensity in tidal bursts of progressive impassionment. A churning rock n roll tumble through dreamy and uplifting struts of self-realisation, Fade Out The Fear makes it clear that the only way is forward.
