Music: Mew
It is a lovely morning... or evening... or something.

A band from Denmark that makes alternative rock most of the time (in other cases, their music is... less definable). After releasing their first 2 albums on an indie label strictly in home country, Mew were signed by Sony in 2003, which handled the distribution of all their subsequent records worldwide.

Tired of bland imported pop in the early 90's and "the lack of a truly alternative scene in Denmark", they decided to help form one. Determined to not make predictable songs, Mew tried their best to make each song as different and interesting as possible (though still rooted in guitar rock for the most part). This is a tradition they carry on to this day.

The lineup consists of Jonas Bjerre (lead vocals), Bo Madsen (guitar), Silas Utke Graae Jørgensen (drums) and Johan Wohlert (bass). In 2006 the bassist left the band to spend more time with his family, and the band was a 3-piece until summer 2014.
