Jamie T - Don’t You Find.
You could call them the “little brothers” of beloved Birmingham bands Swim Deep and Peace, however, JAWS are very quickly catching up with them to achieve “big deal” status. Their support slots for Swim Deep, and first partially headline tour were electrifying to witness, and their Milkshake EP, released in April, was an absolute gem.
Their latest track, Gold, was officially premiered by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 last night, and is every bit as good as (if not better than) all their other material.
The lyrics and vocals are typically JAWS; lazy and mostly about sunshine or beaches. Connor Schoffield’s sleepy voice croons, Take me where the gold drips from the sun to my back.
With excellent drumming and soft, uplifting riffs, it makes for the perfect summer belter and could well be their very own King City or Bloodshake.
