Fear Of Men’s “Island” Video Is As Spellbinding As The Song

Frontwoman Jess Weiss stars in the seaside-set clip for their atmospheric new single.

March 28, 2016

On "Island," the latest Fear of Men single, Jess Weiss sings about a newfound independence. Her voice sounds sad but sure over drowsy chords and sped-up drums. Used to be scared to feel misunderstood/ Now I don't care if I'm not what you want. Director Eleanor Hardwick's video conjures the same careful confidence with pretty footage of the band's biography-reading frontwoman standing on an empty beach and tumbling through misty blue space like some kind of dream-pop Alice in Wonderland.

"'Island' explores the subconscious state between the death of a past self being reborn into a stronger self, and the quest to strip oneself back to its core elements," Hardwick explained to FADER in an email.
