Paws are selling you an brand of indie pop most commonly seen in the mid-‘90s from bands like Sebadoh, Teenage Fanclub, Guided By Voices and their ilk; upbeat, chunky, melodic, but with a fuzzy nostalgic psychedelic bent. Going by the artwork I actually thought this was going to be more twee and lo-fi than it actually is, and there’s a polished and full-sounding production to the whole thing.
It totally sounds like something that’d be bothering the bottom end of the charts in the arse end of the ‘90s, and people who are nostalgic for bands like Midget, early Feeder, the Beekeepers and Symposium will be transported back to those balmy, carefree days in an instant. When they kick things up a gear in ‘Bloodline’ it’s my favourite moment, with a brief but satisfying excursion into strangled panic towards the end. Largely, though, it’s peppy and earnest and while it has plenty of tunes it doesn’t bring much new to the party and will mostly appeal to the ‘90s nostalgia crowd. Competent enough though.
