Paper Dolls and Paper Plates

by Fear of Commitment

Bright, ringing guitars, sparse cello, vintage organ, angelic harmonies, and the beautiful, warm voice of Sarah Knab combine to create a sound that has been compared to Mazzy Star, Velocity Girl, Natalie Merchant, The Cowboy Junkies and The Cranberries.

Album Notes
Fear of Commitment has been kicking around the Washington, DC music scene since February 13, 2000.

Their live shows are known for their understated grace.

Their debut CD Paper Dolls and Paper Plates includes guest vocals by Matt Felch of Sixty Acres and Eric Brace of Last Train Home.

"such gorgeous music that one is compelled to dedicate oneself to proudly walk the FOC path, forever and ever. Amen"
-The Washington City Paper

"a light of the local music sene"

"no matter how pretty the songs are, and many are gorgeous, there's usually something dark lurking"
-Aiding and Abetting Webzine

"Niall Hood of Sixty Acres does double duty in a band called Fear Of Commitment - a wonderful trio featuring a strong vocalist in Sarah Knab. Guest keyboardists and strings fill out the sounds on the great Paper Dolls And Paper Plates CD. This is gentle, evocative, and moody pop that scores with tracks like She's Won, Times Have Changed, and the great (and groovy) Absolutely Everything. Nice breezy pop."
-Shake It Up! Webzine

I never tire of this CD!
There is something about this CD that makes it possible for me to play it incessantly and never tire! Maybe its that same something that causes me to catch myself humming the tunes of the poignant song Wrong Face while waiting in line. The CD Paper Dolls and Paper Plates is a magnificent find for anyone looking to hear the warm, deep voice of Sarah Knab flow beautifully over the rhythmic harmonies of the guitars, cellos, and organs of the rest of the band. Fear of Commitment successfully sings about loves gone wrong, yet avoids the ever-annoying whining that is present in so much of today's music. It jumps from the slow, almost whimsical sound of Thirteen Years to the upbeat Times Have Changed.

Folk Rock Lives!
Fear of Commitment harkens back to the heyday of good folk rock; Absolutely Everything is reminiscent of early 10,000 Maniacs, Wrong Face would fit nicely on the Indigo Girl's Strange Fire, and Not You even has a little Smiths tinge to it. If you're tired of the cookie cutter groups of today, listen to this and remember why grass roots is where it's at.
