Mew – The Zookeeper’s Boy
Everyone ready for stadium indie rock? (Cure crickets chirping) Didn’t think so. If indie rock was ever performed in front of 60K plus crowds though, Mew would be leading the charge with their dreamy, weaving melodies and harmonies. This jam, The Zookeeper’s Boy, also reads like an Indie Rock song.
Mew is the pride of Denmark, founded by four guys, Bo Madsen, Jonas Bjerre, Johan Worlert, and Silas Utke Graae Jorgensen. The latter is one person. Johan Worlert has recently left the band to spend more time with his girlfriend Pernille Rosendahl. Johan and Pernille may or may not have created a band called The Storm. The Storm had a MySpace page for one day, which was then taken down with no explanation.
Mew’s sound can be classified as progressive art rock. I think it sounds like a cross between Muse and The Midnight Juggernauts.
