Mew (and Apparatjik) vocalist Jonas Bjerre and Blue Foundation's Tobias Wilner are longtime collaborators (Tobias has appeared on multiple Mew albums), and now they've formed a new duo, Tachys. Their first single is "When The World Wakes Up," a chilled-out electronic dream pop song that's fueled by Jonas' unmistakable voice. According to a press release, "the lyrics deal with unexpected twists of fate, both on personal and global scales."

If you're a fan of Mew or anything else Jonas has done, there's a very good chance you'll like this too. The song and its video premiere right here:
