About this item

Fews mark their return with details of a new track and a new label. The band, last spotted wowing London’s Brixton Windmill as part of the Speedy Wundergound annual Summer shindig are pleased to announce that they have signed to Play It Again Sam. The first fruits of this new partnership arrives in the form of new single ‘The Zoo’.

Summer 2015; the Swedish / American four-piece unleashed their eight minute motorik-induced debut single ‘ILL’ courtesy of Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground, bringing them to the attention of more than a handful of parties, securing numerous Track Of The Week accolades along the way. The band’s DIY stance led them to Carey via an anonymous Soundcloud link which, in turn, had him hailing Fews as one of his favourite artists of the year and will see him overseeing the band’s debut album.

No less ambitious than its predecessor, ‘The Zoo’ rolls in at more conservative three and half minutes, unmasking a postpunk lineage conversing head on with more recent like-minded musical contemporaries.

‘The Zoo’, a fervent salvo of dark, brooding greatness that sees Fews continue their foray forwards heralding the arrival of their debut album in the first half of 2016. Carey assumes the role of the mad professor; subtle bleeps and codes punctuate the production, initiating their call to action.
