Paws are a punk rock band that live in Glasgow with two thirds of it’s members hailing from Inverness and Edinburgh. They bash out infectious, lo-fi garage pop-rock, that can shift from cute melancholia to an unnerving territorial roar. Their live show blends the dynamics of that of a kitten and that of a grizzly bear. Alternative pop songs in kittenBEARkitten structure.
Strong holders of punk rock ethic, PAWS have recorded all their material to date from home and have released a single with Wise Blood Industries, a set of limited run cassette compilations aswell as their recent debut “Mermaid E.P” which was mastered by Bob Weston of Shellac.
Having only been a band for little over a year, PAWS have gigged relentlessly within the UK opening for bands that share their ethic such as No Age, Wavves, Dum Dum Girls, YUCK!, Male Bonding and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti to name a few. BBC Radio 1 also invited the band to play a live session in early 2011 as did BBC 6 Music back in August 2010.
PAWS have now signed a deal with Fatcat Records to release their debut album in 2012.
