PAWS are Phillip Taylor, Josh Swinney and John Bonnar.
More than just the third PAWS record, No Grace is representative of a transformative period of time in the bands life and is the gravel-throated affirmation of that ‘do it or die’ attitude that informs any great work of passion.
It’s the song you sing when you get kicked in the teeth; the decision you make to get back on your feet and rattle off another punch; it’s the humility of defeat and the ecstasy of triumph because you never gave up.
But more than anything, it’s the sound of the pure fucking energy and joy that comes from making something with your whole heart.
As well as being a statement of intent, No Grace was that opportunity to go big or go home. So PAWS went big.
These songs soar; they fill your head, swell in your heart, rumble in your belly and consume all available space in your ear canals.
But more than all of these things, No Grace is what happens when instead of back down or giving in, you turn the fuck up.
We encourage you to do the same.
