Concert Review: Mew "LIVE" in Singapore!

By  September 5, 2017

Just one day after fellow countrymen Michael Learns To Rock performed at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Danish alternative rock band, Mew, took the stage at the School of the Arts (SOTA) Concert Hall on 3 September.

The SOTA Concert Hall, although considerably smaller than the Indoor Stadium, provided an intimate setting that was perfect for a band such as Mew. However, while tickets in the circles were sold out, the unoccupied seats littered across the stalls area made it fairly obvious in a space with a mere capacity of 600.

By a quarter past 8, the band was up on stage playing In A Better Place. Special, which followed after, was crowd and the intro of the track had a few popped up from their seats to dance along to the upbeat tempo. As earlier promised in a video greeting to fans in Singapore, the band played a good mix of music from their latest album, Visuals, such as Twist Quest and Nothingness And No Regrets, alongside their older tracks Am I Wry? No and Satellites.

Much to the contrary of his seemingly quiet demeanour, Frontman Jonas Bjerre's falsetto was on point the entire night and especially shone in the likes of Snow Brigade and Waterslides. As each song went by, more and more members of the audience started to get on their feet. By the time the band played Carry Me To Safety, every single person in the concert hall had moved on from crossing their arms and slightly nodding to full-on head banging. It's also worth noting how instead of the band prompting audience members to get up and dance, it was the fans themselves who got those around them to stand by shouting: "Eh, stand leh!"

In the atmosphere that dabbled between the extreme polars of intense and chill, the kaleidoscopic visuals and psychedelic stage lightings were also impeccable that night.

Following in the footsteps of Radiohead, the band performed a second encore with Comforting Sounds, their arguably most defining and awaited track on the setlist. After a mesmerizing extended outro, Jonas took the time to thank and shake the hands of those who were standing in front. His genuine and humble disposition ended the short yet sweet, 1 hour 15 minute concert on a sweet and heartwarming note for both concertgoers and the band who would be embarking on the rest of their Asian and Australian tour.
