Swedish rock act Stew reconnects Rock to its 70s Roots with ‘Hot’ EP
Swedish Rock Band STEW has released their 4 track EP, HOT, a gritty and nostalgic fusion of classic rock and blues inspirations.
“This EP is a mix of classic rock, blues and soul! The four songs are heavy influenced by the late 60’s and 70’s era. With groovy riffs, strong vocals and swinging drums! Classic yet modern.” – STEW
Stew is a Swedish power-trio that consists of Markus Åsland (Bass/Vocals), Nicklas Jansson (Guitar), and Nicklas Dahlgren (Drums). They got together in the beginning of 2017 and noticed quickly that they all were into the same kind of music and drew influences from the late 60’s and 70’s era. The group started jamming, wrote a few songs and booked some gigs. Everything went well, and then they made plans for the EP.
“We recorded the basic tracks live in studio and then vocals, solos and percussion on top in Lakesong Music Studio with engineer Kristian Lakeson. The EP was mixed/mastered by Joona Hassinen at Studio Underjord; the cover art was made by Maline Nordin. It’s really fun because the three of us can now call ourselves best friends, we just love to play with each other and that’s the main thing! We hope it shines through to the listener!”
