In exciting news for alternative rock enthusiasts and fans of PAWS, the Scottish band recently unveiled their latest single, “Uncertain,” setting the stage for the release of their upcoming self-titled album on October 27, 2023.
Following the well-received pre-release singles “One Nation Under Dog” and “Disenchanted,” “Uncertain” offers a unique glimpse into the band’s musical prowess and artistic evolution. Exploring themes of self-doubt, vulnerability, and navigating the complexities of modern life, the track showcases PAWS‘ signature sound that seamlessly blends elements of 90s alternative rock, indie punk, and sordid pop. Reflecting on “Uncertain,” lead vocalist Phillip Jon Taylor explains, “It’s a song about Uncertainty! In one’s self, one’s abilities, one’s mood, one’s health, one’s whatever else. It’s also about feeling ashamed and guilty for over sharing, extroverting and alienating yourself. I love the dynamics in this one. It’s kinda moody/broody and then has a Teenage Fanclub-esque (I wish) chorus.”
Known for their immersive live performances and emotive storytelling, PAWS effortlessly captures the essence of youthfulness and maturity in their music. Their upcoming self-titled album promises an introspective journey through the highs and lows of existence, embodying a potent mixture of raw energy and contemplative musings.With their latest release, the band decided to take creative control once more, following collaborations with industry heavyweights such as Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 and Andy Monaghan of Frightened Rabbit. This hands-on approach allowed PAWS to tap into their DIY ethos, resulting in a record that effortlessly combines their extensive musical knowledge with a newfound sense of freedom and joy.
PAWS‘ third album is a testament to their growth as artists, encapsulating the spirit of their early work while embracing fresh ideas and sounds. Uniting the forceful charm of alternative rock with evocative instrumentals, infectious indie punk, and ambient electronics, the band delivers an authentic and captivating listening experience that resonates with audiences across generations.
