Enigmatic MEW return with new album, video

Enigmatic MEW return with new album, video

Having announced its return with details of a new album, "+-" (pronounced 'plus minus', released by Play It Again Sam), Danish quartet MEW has witnessed feverish expectation mount on both sides of the Atlantic.

The first single from the album, "Satellites," sees the accompanying video premiered on The Fader today and can be seen HERE.  "Satellites" taps into the band's more accessible side while retaining the band's skewed and wonderful off-kilter 'dream thunderstorm pop.'

The new music on " +- " soars.  It's alive, it's vibrant and spacious.  Its skewed pop sensibilities coupled with an ever expansive musical backdrop denotes the extremities of Mew's creative DNA, showing once more a band treading its own unique path.  The album was recorded in Copenhagen, produced by Grammy-nominated Michael Beinhorn (Hole, Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Violent Femmes) and Mew with mixing duties undertaken by Rich Costey.  "+- " also features an appearance from Bloc Party guitarist Russell Lissack on "My Complications," a song he co-wrote that came to fruition having met Mew on a U.S. tour some years ago.

Mew - Jonas Bjerre, Bo Madsen, Silas Utke Graae Jorgenson and Jonas Wohlert - will support " +- " with international touring, beginning with the band's first American show in six years scheduled to take place in March at SXSW.  The band has confirmed a string of European dates for May, major European festivals, and will return to North America for a full tour late summer/fall 2015.
