The indie rock that Birmingham’s JAWS makes is full of heavy drums and dream pop touches that you can’t help but fall for. While the band has been around since 2012, their more recent stream of work has grown the trio by leaps and bounds. With their new album The Ceiling due on April 5, their first single from it is enough to get you excited about what’s to come.
The track is amassed with pedal drenched guitars and snappy drums that get things started. When the bridge begins to open things up, the chunky riffs roll in and start to bring the thunderous sound the band has utilized in the past into the mix. It’s a nice build that holds your ears, while the vocals stay almost out of earshot in the mix. It works, and then things get chaotic and the band proves how far they’ve come together. The song is catchy and intuitive, and gets us excited for the album’s release.
You can stream “Driving At Night” on all streaming sites, you can purchase it in digital shops as well. You can preorder The Ceiling directly from JAWS in their web store before its release date. You can see JAWS on tour beginning April 23 at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow until April 27 in Digbeth, UK at O2 Institute Birmingham. A complete list of their performances can be accessed here.
