We're a couple of months late, but we are excited to have finally stumbled across The Wants and their addictive single 'Fear My Society', which was released late in August. The trio from New York is also set to play a run of shows in the UK in 2020.

'Fear My Society' captures one's innermost fears and anxieties in the most beautiful way possible. In a statement on the track, Madison Velding-VanDam said that the United States' social, political and economic climate inspired the track, but 'Fear My Society was also inspired by internal battles that can leave you feeling overwhelmed. "I was reflecting on the pressures I put on myself to achieve — “will you love me if I’m a failure?” is an honest concern of mine, a universal and primal concern that spans generations and even species. I’m interested in always pushing a step further towards what scares me."
