News Class Of 2014: Pawws

Making sadness sound positively joyous, Pawws’ music is an emotional cocktail that’s absolutely potent.

If people were to listen to just one of your songs, which one would you hope it was and why?
It keeps changing! It also depends on the person listening. At the moment I would play people ‘Outside’ as it’s the newest one on my Soundcloud but hasn’t had a full release or anything.

Is there one festival you’ve got your eyes on playing in particular, and why?
I would really love to play Field Day next year as I’m a Londoner, so I think it would feel quite special. I’ve never been to Japan so Fuji Rocks would be amazing as well.

If your music could be a cocktail, what would it contain and what would you call it?
I’d call it ‘Upsetting Disco’ and it would be a bit sweet and a bit bitter. Hmmm maybe Coke with lemon juice and loads of spirits. No wait, that’s a Long Island Iced Tea isn’t it? A Wrong Island Iced Tea.

Which other bands should people be looking out for in 2014?
There are so many amazing new bands out there that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting this year on the tour. Connan Mockasin, Diana, Skiing, Thumpers, Technology & Teamwork to name, but a few.

If you were to give yourself a motto, what would it be?
This is probably a bit cliche, but just to feel happy and proud with what I’m doing.

What’s the weirdest thing anyone’s done at one of your gigs?
At my show in Berlin, there was a man at the front raving to one of my saddest and slowest songs. But he was in the zone so I liked it.
