Check out the fantastic PAWS



''2012 was a busy year for PAWS. It’s seen the band sign with Brooklyn/Brighton based label FatCat Records and tour the UK and Europe extensively. Their first release on the label in May, the self recorded/produced “Misled Youth EP†was supported by a run of UK shows opening for L.A’s Bleached (ex Mika Miko sisters Jen and Jess Clavin). Key shows at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival, Beacons Festival and appearances at Vice Issue Launch parties in London and Brighton were met with great success to audiences welcoming PAWS with open arms.


At the beginning of the year the boys recorded their debut L.P “Cokefloat!†at the Lightship95 Studio in London with Rory Attwell (ex-Test Icicles) and was released worldwide in October 2012. Singles from the album have enjoyed lots of support from influential UK radio dj’s, receiving plentiful airplay by BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe, a session on BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne, as well as ‘Sore Tummy’ being play-listed on BBC6. Into Autumn and the Canadian punk duo Japandroids invited PAWS to join them on their European tour and shortly after that, their UK tour. The tour saw PAWS play to their biggest audiences to date, including a sold out show at London’s Heaven Nightclub. After the release of the album the band celebrated by heading straight back out on their first headline UK tour. Rammed out shows at Glasgow’s CCA and East London’s Shacklewell arms were important highlights for the trio.


In the later half of 2012, “Cokefloat!†has received support from music media worldwide including features from people like SPIN Magazine, MTV, KEXP Radio, Brooklyn Vegan and Pitchfork. PAWS’ music has even appeared (to the bands surprise) on more than one occasion on the cult West London based television series, “Made In Chelseaâ€. Still fresh from a full UK headline Tour, ten shows in four days at SXSW Festival, an East Coast Tour of North America and a Headline Euro tour…the band are only just getting stuck into what 2013 has ahead for them.''


And now, they're coming to Shetland!
