FEWS are a Swedish based indie rock band comprising band members from Sweden, the US and the UK. They’ve been releasing music since around 2015 and have two albums in their back catalogue: Means from 2016 and Into Red from last year. ‘Heaven’ is their latest single, released last month in May.
The band describe themselves as post-punk, or maybe noise pop. Yeah, I get that. This is top quality indie rock, with all the glorious genre blending and pot boiling you get with this sort of music. It’s why I love it so much. There are industrial elements here that bring to mind Joy Division, krautrock flourishes that recall Can. But ultimately it’s lively, with a nice disengaged vocal as counterpoint.
One word of warning: the video contains strobe lighting and flashing imagery. So, yeah, if you’re susceptible to that kind of thing then please don’t look straight at it. Turn your head and listen instead.
