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
“The title may signal hot contents, but Stew’s blues-rockin’ four-pack regularly rises to boiling point. The riffs roast, the solos steam and the vocals variegate. A groovin’ goulash that satisfies the audio appetite like the finest of phonic feasts.” –Loud-Quiet-Loud

Stew is a Swedish power-trio that consists of Markus Åsland (Bass/Vocals),Nicklas Jansson (Guitar), and Nicklas Dahlgren (Drums). We got together in the beginning of 2017 and noticed quickly that we all were into the same kind of music and drew our influences from the late 60’s and 70’s era. We started jamming, wrote a few songs and booked some gigs. Everything went well, and then we 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 atStudio 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!
