Indie rock trio JAWS take on The Crescent in York yet again for another amazing set following the success of their sophomore record. And, if you don’t know JAWS – you should.
They’re an indie rock band formed in 2012 after the lead singer posted a demo that received an unexpected array of positive feedback that pushed Connor, the lead singer, to start a band with his friends from school. From there, JAWS have been hotly tipped as the ones to watch and the title song from their first album, ‘Be Slowly’ was produced by Oliver Horton (AKA Dreamtrak, who has worked with critically acclaimed acts such as Foals and Swim Deep). JAWS continue with an extended run to their unprecedentedly well-received tour that sees them moving their sets further into the winter months.
JAWS draw their inspiration from synthy 80s pop music, with an alternative edge: they’re a slower, pop-inspired trio reminiscent of the Blue Monday days of New Order. And they definitely don’t blend into the crowd of alternative music on the market; JAWS hit just the right notes to appeal to the more pop, chart-music minded individuals whilst simultaneously steering clear of falling into the category of “generic”.
JAWS’ further shows kick off in Reading on Friday 17th November, before making their way to The Crescent in York for one of their last shows of this season, on 29th November. Tickets are £10 in advance, and doors are at 7.30pm.
