One of my favorite debut albums of 2015 comes from Calgary’s Viet Cong, and FEWS easily reminds me of them with their brand of sinister post punk and math rock flavored guitar riffs on The Zoo, a dark and coldgazey song for which the band dropped a grainy music video. The London based Swedish band who just signed to Play It Again Sam also reminds me of some of my other favorite dark post punkers, like Editors, early Bloc Party, and Interpol, but FEWS sounds even more satisfyingly sinister. The Zoo’s music video was directed and animated by Alden Volney, who shot the psychedelic visual treat in post-industrial Malmö. FEWS are currently working on a debut album, holed up in South London in a studio with Dan carey. The Zoo is available as a limited 7″ single and digitally via Play It Again Sam.
