JAWS are back with their full length sophomore album ‘Simplicity’, read below to find out exactly why you need to get behind this band…
JAWS are a 3 piece indie-pop outfit hailing from Birmingham, England. They formed back in 2012 and released their debut EP ‘Milkshake’ in 2013. They followed this on with a brilliantly received debut LP ‘Be Slowly’, gaining the band the recognition they deserved and starting their loyal fan following. After a short period of quiet from the band, they returned last year with a brand new single ‘Bad Company’ which gained airplay from Huw Stephens of Radio One. They have seen rapidly growing success with support slots for the likes of Peace and Spector, they are now back with a full length sophomore album which has had an insane first week of initial release.
What I truly love about this album as a whole is that each track is different in it’s own way and pays homage to a slightly different sounding style than the track before. You get lost in each tracks meaning and focus on every intricate detail of the song, as each track easily flows along, you get drawn into their breezy manner. There are no tracks on this album that are ‘skippable’ and that’s when I personally feel that you’ve found a band that are going to go far, one that can collate an entire album of killer tracks.
Their tracks are mellow and feelgood, they have a light, up-beat feel to them that leaves that warm fuzzy feeling inside. With hazy melodies, sweet-sounding vocals, relatable lyrics and an up-beat feel that you can definitely move your feet to, there is nothing not to love about this album. You feel lost when it ends and feel the urge to play it through again and again. With a maturer sound than previous releases, JAWS have truly outdone themselves with this release, although their current sound still leaves you excited for future material from the band.
