Just over a year ago Jaws released their debut album Be Slowly following the success of their EPs Gold and Milkshake. In September, ahead of their UK tour, they released ‘What We Haven’t Got Yet’. This new single indicates a maturity in the tone of lead vocalist Connor Schofield and laces pop and indie genres in a way that is effortlessly reminiscent of summer days. It is beautiful to listen to when you want to imagine you are in the July sun and avoid the reality that you’re wearing a coat indoors to save on bills at uni.
Jaws have been on the tip of the tongue for music lovers the last few years. With each release, they seem to create catchier and catchier tunes, which appeal to a wider audience while remaining in their own brilliantly, unusual atmospheric sound.
According to their Twitter page their performance at Think Tank? on Friday is very close to selling out. With fans responding well to the performances on the tour so far it is set to be a gig worth attending.
Think you might be interested in Jaws? With melodies that have an air of Nirvana to them whilst also a jangly upbeat style more close to the Charlatans or Peace it’s hard to define their sound but you can grab a free download of their song ‘Holy Cat’ from their website. Have a listen and then providing you like what you hear see the band live this Friday in the Toon.
