FEWS – “The Zoo” (Stereogum Premiere)
There’s little we know about London-based Swedish band FEWS except for the fact that they’ve been working with hailed producer Dan Carey, a connection that shows strongly in their work. Having just been signed to Play It Again Sam earlier this year, FEWS’ treatment of malevolent post-punk in new track “The Zoo” is a swaggering undertaking that bears additional semblance to DIIV and Faust. If you take all this in and then add Carey’s input to the mix — his producing repertoire includes TOY, SEXWITCH, and Childhood, to name a few — it’ll be no doubt that FEWS are a band worth keeping an eye (or ear) on.
