Wow. I really don't know what to say here except to admit to you how embarrassed I am that I didn't know who these guys were before I heard this EP, and how incredibly excited I am for the full length And the Glass Handed Kites, coming out soon, from which the first three songs are culled from.
This music is epic in scope (and Danish, too), painting grand landscapes of elegant space rock, mixed with bare bones garage rock all backed with the delicate, high-pitched and ghostly voice of frontman Jonas Bjerre. You never know where one song's bass line will lead you; it usually just drags you along anyway, flooding your mind with bionic rock anthems and eerie, ambient beds of backup synth. Think Sigur Ros meets The Bends, with elements of M83 and you start to get a picture.
If you're new to Mew and want the epitome of what a Mew tune sounds like, check out "The Zookeeper's Boy", "Am I Wry? No", and "Comforting Sounds", all three of which will launch your mind into a climatic, masturbatory gush of thoughts and images that will soil your mind's sheets forever.
