Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Fews.
It takes over two minutes before Sweden-via-America’s Fews offer up any lyrics on ‘LaGuardia’ (a nod to the revolutionary early 20th century New York City politician of the same name), and even then we’re gifted a short, sharp ten words, delivered in an anxious monotone: “I understand that resistance is something good/ I accept this”.
It’s a stark marker in a song that never relents in pace nor intensity from the get go. Here, Fews don’t need something as obvious as words to get their point across: ‘LaGuardia”s motorik rhythms and post-punk squall are as brutal and punishing as any spat out state of the nation missives.
Resistance may be something good, but against Fews? Well, that’s ultimately futile. Listen to LaGuardia – premiering here on DIY – below.
