Mew got its start as the brainchild of four friends in upper-class suburb of Copenhagen, Hellerup. With sights set on creating music, Jonas Bjerre, Johan Wohlert, Silas Utke Graae Jørgensen, and Bo Madsen formed the group in 1994 and laid the foundation for the Danish indie music scene, emerging as one of the best musical groups to come out of the area. It did take the band some time to get their recognition, though, and it wasn't until their third album release that they received any major commercial success. However, after releasing Frengers in 2003, the group went on a European tour alongside R.E.M. and began attracting wider attention.
Having been around for nearly ten years already, they were due the fame they began to achieve in the mid to late 2000s, when the Danish group began to achieve international fame. Having grown their fan base while on tour with R.E.M., the group released their fourth album, And the Glass Handed Kites, to all of Europe and the United States. The album received critical acclaim and the group was described as making a new form of sound called "dreamy thunderstorm pop." Later that year, in 2006, the group took home four statuettes at the Danish Music Awards.
After that year, though, success couldn't keep the band together as Johan Wohlert decided to leave the band to spend more time with his wife and child. Over the next few years, the band never truly replaced Wohlert, even though they toured with additional members for their live shows. Instead, the group elected to record with just three members and returned to Brooklyn, New York in 2008 to record their next album, 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.
Only three years later, in the summer of 2012, the group premiered two new songs that would appear on their sixth studio album, but a year later, in 2013, the band dropped from Sony records as they instead opted to produce and release their music independently and get back to their roots. Over the next few years, the group was busy recording their newest album and working on a multitude of side projects, including an app for the iPhone, that continued to give their fans new music during the lull between album releases. Finally, though, in April of this past year 2015, the group released their newest album, + -, which has already experienced critical success.
With a long career spanning two decades, it should come as no surprise that Mew has blessed their fan base with a multitude of top songs. With six albums to their names, they've built a career off of giving their fans songs to love and are often most remembered for tracks like "Satellites," "Comforting Sounds," "The Zookeeper's Boy," "Snow Brigade," "Water Slides," "The Night Believer," and "Rows."
While traditionally classified as an alternative rock band, Mew's sound is oftentimes also referred to as indie, and sometimes even progressive rock. However, Bo Madsen, who helped found the band but recently left, has often told fans and critics alike that Mew's sound is what he refers to as "indie stadium," saying the music is most often a mix between "feelings" and "thinking."
Mew laid the groundwork for new indie bands in Denmark and their got their recognition for it in 2003 when they won awards for Album of the Year and Band of the Year at the Danish Music Critics Award Show. In fact, the album that won, Frengers, was described as a work of "quiet brilliance."
Even though Johan Wohlert left the band in early 2006 to be with his wife and son, Tristan, he did not quit music. In fact, his wife, Pernille Rosendahl, was a member of the now-dissolved band Swan Lee - and the two of them later went on to form their own duo and called themselves The Storm.
The group's fifth studio album may have one of the longest album titles in the history of music. At 23 words, 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, is often written and referred to as simply "No More Stories…".
