JAWS - Birmingham, Hare and Hounds

It’s due time JAWS had their homecoming. Gigs and gigs and more gigs have been on the agenda for the B-town group, with more shows (including a timely jaunt in Italy) in the pipeline. This sold out dig at the Hare and Hounds is guaranteed to be busied, likely to be sweaty.

It’s a song about fatherhood, or lack of. And its self-professed ‘gothic miserablism’ is actually more like a lease of life. If it connects personally, it’ll likely have you sobbing. But even if the emotional impact’s low, you’ll still be marvelling at the production, the crossing over of musical paths you never deemed previously possible.

It’s often breathtaking.
