One of our favorite SXSW discoveries FEWS has just released a new song ” Paradiso “ along with the announcement of the follow up to their 2016 debut album Means. The sophomore album titled Into Red will be released on March 1, 2019, via Play It Again Sam Records. Paradiso is the first offering from the record.
Paradiso is full of the stinging guitar riffs and powerful drums we expect from FEWS, with an added surprise of the baritone vocals from lead singer Frederick. He spoke about the writing of Paradiso stating:
“whilst touring last year I was joking around with the guys going like Hey I’ve got a new song!” even though I really hadn’t. I just played an open E for them and yeah, they just left the room. Later we headed to Amsterdam and had two days-off – one day to party and one day to write. We got booked into Q-Factory studios and by accident, I did the same joke and added ‘D-B-G’, this time everyone took notice – we worked all day and finished it. Nameless, we decided to try it out at Paradiso, the venue we were playing in Amsterdam. Having made its debut someone yelled ‘PARADISOOO!’ so the name stuck cause it was born there.”
