As far as bands go, you can’t really go wrong with the music that emits from Glasgow’s Sacred Paws. The indie pop duo has the ability to craft indie jams that are full of pop touches that in many ways could remind anyone of so much pop that came before them. Now with their catchy new single “The Conversation” they’re ready to take the next step with a new album, Run Around the Sun due in late May.
The extremely upbeat track is full of snappy drums and guitar hooks for days. The pacing never falls flat, the dual vocals pop and shimmer and the way the song is laid out should keep it in your head for days after you hear it once. The video has the duo in a convertible doing everything from performing to chatting on the phone, while seemingly driving through a vortex. It all works and has us prepped and excited for the album’s release.
You can stream “The Conversation” from all streaming sites, you can watch the video above or on YouTube, and you can purchase the track in all online music stores. Run Around the Sun is available for pre-order on compact disc or peak vinyl directly from Merge Records ahead of its May 31 release date. Sacred Paws will be appearing at MRG 30, the 30th Anniversary Festival for Merge Records in Carrboro, NC and Durham, NC over four days between July 24 through July 27.
