Dublin-born and London-based interdisciplinary artist Fears (Constance Keane) has released her new anticipated forthcoming album ‘affinity’ via TULLE. Tulle is the women-led independent record label that Constance runs and focuses on working with and for underrepresented voices in music. ‘affinity’ serves as the follow-up to Fears’ 2021 debut ‘Oíche’ and showcases collaborations with Jemima Coulter, Ailbhe Reddy, and Sophie Gwen Williams. The record arrives after the release of acclaimed singles cliff, 11249 and 4th of the 1st and can be ordered now digitally, and on black vinyl and limited edition marbled pink vinyl here. Watch the video for cliff via YouTube below.

Fears has crafted 10 self-produced tracks that make up ‘affinity’. Drawing on human connection, intimacy, and
moments of peace in a city, she combines reflective electronics, acoustic samples, and stirring vocals with organic visuals, blurring the boundaries between music and visual art. Her minimalist yet striking approach centers on emotive subjects that are deeply personal yet remarkably universal. Written and recorded between London, New York, 
and Dublin, ‘affinity’ is a melancholy and at times playful exploration of the relationship 
between Fears’ physical surroundings and the work she creates. 

Fears is the artist, musician and producer Constance Keane. Fears has received acclaim across the world, with her music being covered by i-D, The Sunday Times, Noisey, Huck Magazine, BBC Arts and more with her debut album ‘Oíche’ being named as one of The Guardian Readers’ Top Albums of 2021, CLASH Magazine’s Top Albums of 2021, and the Irish Independent’s Top Irish Albums of 2021. Fears is also  a founding member of critically acclaimed feminist punk band M(h)aol and her fashion design has been featured in publications such as Vogue Italia, The Sunday Independent, Irish Country Magazine, STELLAR Magazine, and more.
