INTRODUCING: Rews

We’re putting the spotlight on the hottest and most exciting new bands around with our Introducing feature, ready to highlight the artists with the biggest potential to make an impact on their scene.

High energy duo Rews have just completed a sold out UK tour with American favourites Halestorm where they introduced their brand new single, ‘Can You Feel It?’, which joins their debut album ‘Pyro’ in their repertoire.

Singer and guitarist Shauna Tohill said the single “is a song that takes a positive spin on hurt feelings. It encourages the listener to ‘let it out’, ‘dance’, ‘sing’ and not be afraid to explore how they feel in order to better themselves and learn to love again. It was inspired and written during a period of heartbreak and describes the stages of grief that we endure.”

WHAT THE BAND SAY:

DP!: How would you describe yourselves to someone who has never heard Rews before?
Rews: We are a two piece high energy alternative rock band consisting of Shauna Tohill (vocals and guitar/keys) and Collette Williams (drums/percussion and vocals).

DP!: How did the band form?
Shauna: I moved to London fresh from an artist residency where I was spending time writing. I wanted to meet other musicians, and a girl told me about this awesome musician called Collette Williams. I tracked her down online, sent a few emails, and turns out she had moved to London at the same time and was looking for other artists to play with too. It was fate! We quickly met up, jammed, and obviously clicked because here we are today!
Collette: Indeed. I’d moved up to London after working at a well-known music school in Guildford. I’d started doing a lot of sessions, and decided it would be better to be based in London to be on the door step of labels. One of my friends from University in Leeds had a sister in London that Shauna randomly met, and she sign-posted us to each other. Six degrees of separation, eh?

DP!: What plans do you have for the future?
Rews: Short term; we’d love to play Reading & Leeds next festival season. Long term… WORLD DOMINATION!

DP!: Which new bands are you listening to right now?
Rews: I’ve just discovered Yvette Young. She’s ace!

DP!: Which bands do you aspire to and why?
Rews: We both really love Nothing But Thieves, Foo Fighters, and Biffy Clyro for their rock credibility mixed with soaring catchy songs. We just want to inspire people to enjoy every day.

DP!: What’s the stand out moment in your career so far?
Rews: Probably playing to a packed out John Peel tent at Glastonbury… and being on this support tour with Halestorm and Avatar!
