Selected to perform by T in the Park
PAWS are Phillip, Josh and Matt, a trio from Glasgow. Over the past 12 months the band have gone from ambitious bedroom jams to supporting countless cult indie bands including Dum Dum Girls, Wavves and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.
Their sound nods to Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Dr and The Lemonheads as it buzzes and fizzes along, slotting neatly alongside a host of current bands: Best Coast, Cloud Nothings and Veronica Falls. At the beginning of 2012 they recorded their debut LP Cokefloat! which was eventually released in October. Singles from the album have enjoyed lots of support from influential UK radio DJs, receiving airplay from BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe and BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne.
