Paul Riddle (vocals), Amy Fishlock (bass), Chris Lodge (drums), Darren Lord (synth, and Ben Holmes (guitar)
Combining influences such as New Order, Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears & Soft Cell, FEHM are a five-piece band from Leeds who create music that is ‘Startlingly brisk and wholly stark' (Clash).
Part of Leeds’ ever evolving, close knit DIY community their debut EP ‘Circadian Life’ released on Art Is Hard Records in late 2016 was described by DIY as ‘Cut through with searing white heat…a fearsome stride forward’.
The band are recording their debut album in July with Matt Peel at The Nave. There are also new singles coming in July which see the band fully embracing their ever-expanding sound and venturing further into the darker sonic depths that their last releases hinted at. Whilst layers of synths, guitar melodies and driving bass lines wind and fall underneath Paul’s stark and melodic vocals.
