#ThrowbackThursday: GIHE w/ REWS (27.10.17)

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown in the UK, we’re unable to make it into the Hoxton Radio studio to broadcast our weekly live new music show from 7-9pm. Instead, we’re sharing previous GIHE radio show recordings as #ThrowbackThursday sessions, so you can still enjoy 2 hours of new music tunes & chats with some of our favourite artists each week.

Today, we’ve picked our October 2017 show with the wonderful Shauna from REWS. Mari & Kate spoke to her about the band’s debut album Pyro, the video shoot for ‘Your Tears’, growing up in a musical family, and performing on the John Peel stage at Glastonbury. Shauna also played acoustic renditions of ‘Your Tears’ and ‘Miss You In The Dark’ live on air too.

Listen back to the show below.

(You can listen back to our May 2016 show with Shauna here afterwards too, if you’re a big REWS fan. This was also Kate’s first ever GIHE radio show!)

Track Of The Day: REWS – ‘Your Tears’

A racing, energetic slice of pop-rock, London-based duo REWS‘ have shared their latest single ‘Your Tears’. Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, it’s the third single taken from the band’s highly anticipated debut album Pyro, which is set for release via Marshall Records on 3rd November.

“‘Your Tears’ is the adrenaline driven, musical rendition of the boy who cried wolf,” explains drummer Collette Williams about the track, which is laced with pop rock sensibilities, dancing beats and front woman Shauna Tohill’s powerhouse vocals.

Rews will be finishing the year with a 16 date UK headline tour starting in November to celebrate the launch of Pyro, and we can’t wait to see them perform live again at London’s Old Blue Last. Check out which date you can make and listen to ‘Your Tears’ below.
