FEWS have premiered their first new track since their 2016 debut album album ‘Means’. The track is ‘LaGuardia’ and was first aired and evolved as a set-opener while guests of Pixies on their European tour.
Making its entrance on those dates, “LaGuardia” is one of a handful of new songs the Anglo-Swedish quartet have been writing and demoing over recent weeks. Once again hooking up with producer Dan Carey, “LaGuardia”, a Krautrock-inflected maelstrom, rolls menacingly into earshot, almost four minutes of pulsating wonder that certainly bodes well for the future, a well-timed aural interlude prior to their return to the studio.
FEWS released their debut album Means through Play It Again Sam. The band have live shows with the likes of Pixies, Spring King, Fat White Family and Bloc Party.
Means, produced by Dan Carey, is awash with frenetic, melodic guitar riffs that jostle with thunderous bass lines and metronomic rhythms, their dark, danceable take on post-punk translating into frenzied audience participation. Alongside their musical peers, further cryptic influences emerge via Paul Auster’s New York Trilogy, surrealist painter Rene Maigritte and Swedish football idol Zlatan Ibrahimovic, immortalized in the album track Zlatan.
The band will head out on-the-road later this month for two UK dates as part of this year’s Independent Venue Week after which sees them embark on their first European headline tour.
MEANS is available now through Play It Again Sam
