Fears is London-based Irish artist, musician and producer Constance Keane. Combining reflective electronics, acoustic samples, and haunting vocals with organic visuals, Fears invites the listener on 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.

Her debut album ‘Oíche’, meaning ‘night’ in Irish, will be released in May. An intimate depiction of discovery, Oíche unearths internal dialogue, and makes peace with uncertainty.

The second single is ‘Vines’, following on from ‘tonnta’ in December.

Fears writes: “This track was written before a breakdown. It chronicles a stage where one blames themselves, and sees that it is only them that is the problem in a situation. Listening back, I hear myself drowning in confusion as to why I can’t control my feelings, and a want to shed those thought patterns.”

The video for ‚vines‘ carries on where ‘tonnta’ left us. ‘vines’ documents the journey from being lost at sea, washed away by the weight of blame, trauma, and rumination, to a Megalithic portal tomb – Ballybrack Dolmen, built circa 2500 BC, arriving at sunrise.

Fears explains: ‘This place holds particular significance to me as somewhere to offload weight, as my family and I go to this dolmen each Winter Solstice, write down something we want to let go of from the previous year, and burn it. As the sun rises, the longest night of the year ends, and you look forward to longer days and a fresh perspective. The rock I am carrying is granite, the main type of rock occurring in the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains, representing grief held in the land and physical space.”

TULLE is a new women-led independent record label focussed on working with and for underrepresented voices in music.
