Maps - Don't Fear

It's a shame that Maps didn't see fit to include an original b-side for this 10" single, as he did with his previous two, because, frankly, the more new Maps music we can get our hands on the better we'll feel the next morning. Don't Fear just continues what is a frighteningly good run for bedroom producer and confirms what we pretty much knew already...

Maps makes music for lost children to fall asleep thinking they've found their way home to. Music for the middle of the night when a friend turns up unannounced because they were worried about you, only to find you crying and you're not sure why, music for the moment they put their arms around you and it feels better. Not perfect. Not like everything's gonna be alright quite yet. But better. Like you know you're gonna make it regardless.
