School of Language – Old Fears

Formerly known as Field Music, brothers Peter and David Brewis decided to go opposite directions. The result is David Bewis’s first solo album as School of Language. Old Fears is filled with digital textures and powerful, funky pop songs. Though the album has a psychedelic feeling and tracks that seem more like demos, the lyrics take it up a notch. David sings of young love and anxiety, something that fans in their teens can relate to. The song “Dress Up” is a perfect example of a happy synth guitar melody, but it contains heavy lyrics about being antisocial. Overall, Old Fears is a funky album that will make you tap your feet, but also think a little more deeply. -Kristen Humphries
