Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark (February 9, 2017) The Venue Konservatoriets Koncertsal, in the most central part of Frederiksberg, is a beautiful 3-floor concert hall that has been listed as a protected building in Copenhagen since 1994.

From the very first moment I heard My Complications live at Vanguard Festival in the summer of 2014, I knew it’d be one of my favourite songs off the new album. Granted, the dynamic-less Russell Lissack riff felt (and still feels!) a bit forced, but I have no problem coping with it. The pace of…

Live: Posten

Odense, Denmark (November 18th, 2014) Going to a Mew concert these days has become much like participating in a lottery. They have started shuffling the songs of the setlists quite a bit. They have a back catalogue big enough to pull it off as well. When you leave out a single like Introducing Palace Players…
