Okay, MEW is officially BACK!
As you may or may not know, Mew have a new album coming out. April 27th, 2015, to be exact. Titled, + – . I am very happy. Beyond happy. This will probably be my most anticipated album of 2015. The reason being, they have not put out an album since 2009. That was 6 years ago! I’ll even let those six years slide, because that last album, No More Stories… was absolutely brilliant. The daunting task of coming up with something else had to be a drawn out one, I’m sure. BUT… it’s 2015, and I WANT MY GOD DAMN MEW ALBUM.
The first single off of their new album, titled, “Satellites” debuted in January and this is now the second single, “Water Slides”, to be released from + – . I have to say, “Satellites” was just alright. But “Water Slides” is the single I’ve been waiting for. The Mew I have been missing from my life. Where “Satellites” touched upon a much lighter and uplifting theme, “Water Slides” decides to delve into a much more brooding and somber world. The world where Mew shines. It is in this matter that they warm up my heart the most. I love me some dark undertones in music. I thrive on it. So basically, what I’m trying to say is that this song has been on repeat all day and I’ve shoved it down all of my friends throats already. You guys are next in my shoving! WOOO!
This song is posted through Soundcloud, but for whatever reason, you can only listen to the song through Pitchfork’s website. Not my decision, but here’s the link to listen to the new song, “WATER SLIDES“. Enjoy.
