We’re Getting Excited For the New Album From FEWS


Depending on what types of music you follow, you may or may not know about FEWS. The Swedish born and London transplanted four piece made quite the splash a couple of years ago at SXSW, their debut album was hard to beat and now, they’re gearing up for a new album due in March. The first two singles from Into Red have us excited for what the record will sound like, while offering some great indie rock touched post-punk in the process.

The first single, “Business Man” is full of depth and never deters from the post-punk mold. Where the band had done that a bit on their past releases, this track proves they can stay on point while adding bits from new wave and synth pop without being either. This is post-punk re-imagined and it’s lovely. The dark build, the disaffected vocals, the bass line that offers plenty of murky rhythm-it’s all here-and we love it.

The second single “Paradiso” steers closer into the realm of traditional post punk, complete with new wave notations. There’s more sonic energy with this track, where the band breaks loose on occasion and adds melodic tones and a meandering guitar hook that should place the song into your head for a long time after you hear it. The way the drums snap when warranted, the way they repeat verses, there’s a lot happening here that you can’t help but love it all.

You can stream the singles on all streaming sites, you can purchase them in digital shops, or you can preorder Into Red on various formats before it drops on March 01 directly from the band, here. You can catch FEWS in person starting March 16 at VERA Gronigen in the Netherlands and ending in Barcelona at Razzmatazz. A complete list of their upcoming tour dates can be found here
