FEARS w/ support from Laura Groves
Fears is the solo project of Dublin born musician and producer Constance Keane.
Combining reflective electronics, acoustic samples and haunting vocals, Fears invites the listener into an ethereal journey, blurring the boundaries between music and visual art.
Her minimalist approach centres on emotive subjects, which are all-at-once deeply personal yet remarkably universal. Gaining a reputation for engaging and immersive live shows, recent highlights include performances at Other Voices, Body & Soul and concerts alongside Girls Names, Epicycle and Carla dal Forno. Her single ‘h_always’ was widely acclaimed and voted #3 in Top 100 Irish Tracks of 2018 by The Thin Air. 2019 sees the release of her latest single ‘Fabric’ with another single release and tour dates scheduled for Autumn.
One of Moving on Music’s 2018/19 Emerging Artist’s, Fears continues to beguile and inhabit all those who listen.
“Fears has grown to become one of Ireland’s foremost creators of ambitious, subtle pop…an artist wielding rapt and carefully-woven electro-pop like few others” - The Thin Air
“a stunning, emotive and deeply ethereal track[h_always]” - Chordblossom
