Mew, Sensory Spaces, and their Upcoming Album


Mew, a band that was formed in Hellerup, Denmark, have been my most favourite since forever. You might know their famous hit songs like Comforting Sounds from the album “Frengers” or maybe Special and The Zookeeper’s Boy from the album “And The Glass Handed Kites”. You might also have heard of their last album, which was the fifth album, (and has the longest album title ever) that’s called, “No More Stories Are Told Today, I’m Sorry They Washed Away / No More Stories, The World Is Grey, I’m Tired Let’s Wash Away” which was released in 2009, with again, some songs that are even catchier than their songs in older albums, like Introducing Palace Players”, “Beach”, and “Hawaii”.

After their fifth album, the long-awaited sixth album is going to be released in a few months! Mew have already played some new songs on their latest concerts, like “Klassen” and also they gave us a teaser to a part of another new song which currently being called “Koor” that were sung by Lyrika (Lyrika is the Icelandic vocal group that consists of members from Björk’s all-female choir).

This 3 minutes video of Lyrika performing a Mew mash-up with new song and “The Zookeeper’s Boy” gave me chills all over my body. The lyric that I could catch from the video:

“I think, I thought, maybe you could change me.
I know, you and I, clinging to a bad dream,
And in between the shades on your screen,
They come and go, sometimes they never show”

With this four and a half year gap between the 5th and the 6th album, I hope the upcoming album will be as great as all of Mew’s albums. We will just have to wait and see. But I’m sure it is going to be wonderful and epic! Here’s another teaser to their new app called Sensory Spaces and it’s leading to their new single off their 6th album, like what they said on their website. So, plug your headphones in and turn up the volume, prepare for another goose bumps!

Mew, band yang dibentuk di Hellerup, Denmark, ini telah menjadi salah satu favorit saya sejak lama. Kamu mungkin tahu lagu-lagu hit mereka yang sudah terkenal banget seperti “Comforting Sounds” dari album “Frengers” atau mungkin “The Zookeeper’s Boy” dan “Special” dari album “And The Glass Handed Kites”. Kamu juga mungkin sering mendengar tentang album terakhir mereka, yaitu album kelima (yang judulnya super panjang) yaitu, “No More Stories Are Told Today, I’m Sorry They Washed Away / No More Stories, The World Is Grey, I’m Tired Let’s Wash Away” dirilis pada tahun 2009, dengan lagi, beberapa lagu yang bahkan lebih catchy dibandingkan lagu lama mereka, seperti Introducing Palace Players”, “Beach, dan “Hawaii”.

Setelah album NMS, album keenam yang sudah lama ditunggu-tunggu ini bakal dirilis dalam waktu dekat. Mew sudah memainkan beberapa lagu baru di konser-kosner mereka sekarang, seperti “Klassen”. Mereka juga telah merekam sebuarh video yang berisikan teaser dari sedikit bagian lagu baru mereka yang disebut “Koor”. Bagian dari lagu baru ini dinyanyikan secara akapela oleh Lyrika, grup vokal asal Islandia yang terdiri dari anggota paduan suara milik Björk.

Video “Koor” yang digabung dengan lagu “The Zookeeper’s Boy” ini jelas membuat saya merinding saat mendengarnya. Lirik yang bisa saya tangkap dari lagu ini adalah:

“I think, I thought, maybe you could change me.
I know, you and I, clinging to a bad dream,
And in between the shades on your screen,
They come and go, sometimes they never show”

Dengan jarak selama empat setengah tahun untuk mengerjakan album baru mereka, saya harap album ke-6 ini bakal jadi semewah album-album sebelumnya. Kita cuman bisa menunggu. But I’m sure it is going to be wonderful and epic!

Untuk tambahan, ini teaser lain untuk aplikasi baru mereka berjudul “Sensory Spaces” yang mengarah ke single terbaru Mew nantinya. So, plug your headphones in and turn up the volume, prepare for another goose bumps!
