FEWS Means Play It Again Sam. With its debut album Means, Alt-Rock band FEWS bares its teeth with 10 tracks inspired by various genres of music but huddled beneath the safety of Indie Rock. It’s no surprise that the band has a unique feel to it. Its members are not only American, but also British and Swedish – three parts of the world with arguably three different scenes of music, despite trending towards a similar sound recently.
Fews (stylised as FEWS) is a rock band based in Malmo, Sweden with members originating from Sweden and the United States. Self described as post-punk, with motorik elements of krautrock and noise pop, the band blends this sound with elements of neo-psychedelia. The band's first album Means, came out in 2016. The foundation of FEWS began in the late 2000s when David (Dee) Alexander met Fred Rundqvis through MySpace.
FEWS struggle to be themselves on debut album Means. By Ryan Lunn, 18 May 2016, 09:30 BST. Means. Means, released on Play It Again Sam, is the resulting record. It’s a promising debut - an easy listen consistently clean in sound and neatly polished by Carey - but it’s by no means the full package. Despite having the post-post-punk tag attached to them and being heavily influenced by Daniel Kessler’s work with Interpol and Big Noble, the band’s resemblance to Brooklyn wasters DIIV is overbearingly uncanny.

Shadowy post-punk outfit Fews deliver a propulsive, minimalist debut with the help of . producer Dan Carey (TOY, Kate Tempest, Bat for Lashes). Bearing only their given names and a strange reluctance to gig in their homeland of Sweden, the quartet is fronted by American transplant Fred, who guides his bandmates David, Lulu, and Rusty through ten spiny noise-pop jams that occasionally resemble New York contemporaries DIIV, and even bits of early era Cure, in their moody guitar styles.
