KEXP 90.3 FM, Seattle, WA, USA (August 17, 2017) Whenever Mew visits Seattle, it tends to be quite an occasion. Not just for me, personally, since it is my base of operations, but because the city always welcomes them with open arms. They are beloved here, revered even. A great deal of that love is…

Denver, CO, USA (August 15, 2017) Mew is something more than a favorite band to me. Mew was the soundtrack during some of my most influential, chaotic, and life changing years. I listen to Mew and I feel nostalgic, happy, and sad all at once. I have more Mew plays in Apple Music then any…

Chicago, IL, USA (August 12, 2017) I was waiting for the wrong train. We were already running late, in an unfamiliar city, unfamiliar means of transportation helping even less; this Florida girl could not imagine living in Chicago and having to rely on a train to take her to her destinations. “How do people do…

Detroit, MI, USA (August 11, 2017) For me, Mew shows coincide with significant turning points in my life. Their 2009 show in Brooklyn aligned with a tumultuous family falling out. In 2015, I saw them in D.C. shortly after beginning a Master’s program. This July, I moved 7 hours from home to Detroit, a new…

Philadelphia, PA, USA (August 7, 2017) Hello, my name is Lydia and I am a very anxious Frenger. I was fortunate to see my favorite band Mew perform at the Fillmore in Philadelphia on 8/7/17.

New York City, NY, USA (August 3, 2017) When I try to explain Mew to friends and family, I never can quite capture what they are – who they are, in proper words. As I recently commented on one of Mew’s photos on Instagram, I said that they are a sound all their own, and…

Leuven, Belgium (July 27, 2017) Quidquid recipitur ad modum recipientis recipitur “Whatever is received into something is received according to the condition of the receiver.” It’s impossible to put anything into its true context without some knowledge of what the possible extremes feel like. Politics, football, architecture, love affairs, whatever. My opinions on those fundamental…

Joensuu, Finland (July 14, 2017) The second oldest (since 1971) rock festival in Finland finally saw Mew performing on one of their stages, and the massive tent was packed right from the start. Funnily enough, it was fairly easy to get to the front if you just walked there ten minutes before showtime. This has…

London, UK (May 23, 2017) Mew are a live force. At their best, the combination of jet engine dynamics, pinpoint lighting and unmistakable visuals forms an experience which fully transports the psyche to their unique world. The distinct elements of great Mew shows come together seamlessly, as if directed by a single hand. Over the…

Bristol, UK (May 21, 2017) Mew at the Bristol Trinity Centre was a surreal experience for me. I have spent much of last night’s car journey home and this beautifully sunny morning trying to formulate a coherent train of thought as to what exactly happened. I have been following Mew’s music since I was around…
