    Mew are a Danish alternative rock band, often incorporating elements of shoegaze and dream pop into their brand of alt rock. They've put out six studio albums, their most recent being 2015's +-. +- is perhaps their biggest, most grandiose statement yet, with the kind of sound that is meant to soar over and fill arenas. They're no stranger to broad scope though, whether it was 2005's excellent And The Glass Handed Kites or 2009's No More Stories Told..., the band has always been using massive soundscapes and dizzying walls of sound to build dense atmospheres for their pop compositions to lay over. They have a truly unique sound, one that any fan of unique alt music should grow accustomed with.

    Last album was really good, but I haven't explored the rest of their catalog.

    last one is the first one that didn't really grab me...

    like, it was good, but I was used to huge leaps in direction (not necessarily quality) for every album and the last one felt like a further exploration of No More Stories

    it's hard to choose one though, all are unique.. but as an integral collection of songs, I would say Glass Handed Kites

    but No More Stories has such a unique atmosphere and sound.. it brings me back to a certain moment in my life and makes me very nostalgic...

    special special band - excited to see what comes next and maybe get on board again this time around because they are really great
