A Brooklyn artist with subtle yet overwhelming charms...

Brooklyn artist Matthew Bannister operates under the name The Beautiful Fear.

Soak that in for a second – what a contradiction, matching the pure aesthetics of beauty with the purely visceral sense of fear.

It’s a dichotomy that lingers in his music, with the slow motion soundscapes set against the perfectly etched detail of his songwriting.

New cut ‘Never Yesterday’ has a dream-like aura, but one punctuated by moments of supreme intensity.

Envisaged as a “relationship collapse song” it’s sense of dis-location extends to time, and a broader feeling of malaise that is difficult to pin down.
