15 years after the release of their Frengers album, Danish alt-rockers Mew will perform the entire record in concert for the first time on a tour hitting Observatory North Park October 9. They formed in 1995, but it wasn’t until Frengers dropped in 2003 that the group began to earn widespread notice outside Denmark, especially after taking the album on a European tour with REM. It was during a U.S. trek in 2009 with Nine Inch Nails that they began picking up a smattering of stateside press, though they’re still not a group whose name is bandied about readily on most contemporary blogs and websites. That seems quite the oversight when one listens to any random track from their newest, 2017’s Visuals, where three of the four original founders are still plying what should clearly be crowd pleasing, toe-tapping, wallet-loosening perennials for millennials. Any failure to recognize them as such is surely your fault, not theirs.
