A wave of post-punk revival at the beginning of the 00s left us with a rich legacy that became a basis for the birth of many other projects. As proven by the band during many live performances, FEWS can easily be categorized as modern reanimators of this sound.
Singlesfrom their upcoming album Glass City only confirm this, and the new track “Strafe” is no exception. Armed with tight basslines, vibrant guitars and slightly detached vocals, the group explore new shades of post-punk that seem to be rediscovered over and over again.
Since the early 2000s, Swedish The Mary Onettes were consistently good, blessing us with their beautiful and shoegaze-tinged new wave sound.
They are still very active, releasing new music from time to time, and yesterday we got another brilliant new 2-track single “Easy Hands” b/w “Pearl Machine”. It is a must-listen for anyone who loves gloomy indie pop with a dreamy, atmospheric twist.
If this pair is any indication of what’s to come, then The Mary Onettes’ upcoming new full-length is going to be truly special. Hopefully, they will announce something soon!
Unstoppable, propulsive and filled with uplifting energy & hypnotically dark atmosphere — that’s how “Get Out”, a new single by FEWS sounds. The instruments in the band’s music work on an intuitive level — each of them appears exactly at the moment when it is really needed.
This is also the first track where FEWS finally look not at external problems, but deep inside themselves — at their fears, feelings of loneliness and anxiety. It feels that with such music it will be a little easier to deal with inner demons.
The band is back with the new album titled Glass City, set for release on April 14 via Welfare Sounds & Records. “Get Out” is released alongside the self-directed lo-fi music video.

More than 20 years in the game now, Sweden indie veterans are true masters of creating dreamy, blissful tunes, which can be best described as mp3 jewels and beautiful audio accompaniments for the peaceful waterfront walk sometime in Autumn.
They continue their winning string on the newest release, a 3-track EP What I Feel In Some Places, which features two fantastic singles and one delightful instrumental. It is quite short, just under 11 minutes, but it’s genuinely marvelous — one you can really lose yourself in.
