Single Review: PAWS – No Grace
Posted by Greg Murray
In the summer of 2015 PAWS kick-flipped out of our sad world of boring realities, into a dream-land that pretty much any pop-punk fan who remembers the 90’s and early 00’s would be extraordinarily psyched about.
In helping produce their third album, blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus caused much joy and – if first single and title-track No Grace is any indication – injected even more American-ness into the trio’s punk sound. Not to say that’s a bad thing, in fact No Grace absolutely froths with skater-boy emotion, channeling contemporaries like Cloud Nothings and Japandroids in a way that evolves from PAWS’ first two albums, 2012’s Cokefloat! and 2014’s Youth Culture Forever.
No Grace will be released this year via FatCat Records, and is available to stream online now.
PAWS are also set to embark on a huge European tour which ends in Edinburgh and Glasgow on the 24th and 25th of June respectively, which will no doubt be cataclysmic home-coming shows.
