About fearcalledliving

Bronx, NY

Fear Called Living is an Electronica/Rock group formed in The Bronx, New York. Their musical style is a very distinctive mixture of electronica, trip hop and rock, with a strong vocal element and raw storytelling lyrics. The band was formed in 2005 by keyboardist/producer Menyu and singer/songwriter Desiree L’amour, who then recruited producer/multi-instrumentalist J. Kingz. L’amour and Kingz had previously fronted two rock bands before beginning Fear Called Living. Kingz decided to continue exploring styles that influenced his youth and convey a dark, gritty, down-tempo sound. Menyu’s compositions are melodic, deep and affecting. L’amour’s storytelling lyrics are philosophical and often stir shrewd, thought-provoking visual images. The combination of elements forms a whole, richer, more distinctly unique sound than found in most mainstream music today.

Fear Called Living pulls inspiration from various sources: photography, literature, technology, and art. They enjoy and appreciate interpreting the strange and obscure as featured in Desiree’s new book Skin, Joey's photography (and photo compilation book, Lomo Snaps), the alternative atmosphere DJ Menyu provides with eclectic mixes (at Selah Lounge in White Plains, NY) and his unorthodox style of illustration art.

The band’s debut album, “Other Days” was released on May 22nd 2007. Their follow-up sophomore album is scheduled for release in the summer of 2010.
