Newly signed to Play It Again Sam at the tail end of last year, Fews are pleased to announce the release of their debut album Means in May 2016. Coming into view last summer with the single "ILL" – an eight-minute sonic rollercoaster courtesy of Dan Carey's Speedy Wundergound imprint, Fews then marked their debut for PIAS with "The Zoo."
Inhabiting a musical landscape that evokes a post-punk legacy, one that continues to evolve and thrill and one that has already seen "The Zoo" is a merely a taste of what's to come. "100 Goosebumps" reveals another side to this multi-national four-piece, a swath of pulsating guitar backed with a metronomic backbeat, almost three minutes of perfect symmetry.
Carey says: "I was blown away when I first heard the demo of ‘The Zoo', particularly at the point at which it first turns from major to minor. The song did it in such a subtle and unusual way that I immediately decided I wanted to make a whole album with them...they have an incredibly open, glassy and clear sound, even when they are hitting it really hard. In my mind, this creates possibilities which aren't there for most bands."
