#347: Jaws - Be Slowly

B-Town might well be a distant memory to most, even laughed at by those thought to be at the centre of the sound that gave the Midlands some sunshine over a year ago. The fact that some of those bands are now on their second album is a testament to the fact the scene meant nothing but the music said something. One band that caught the tail end of said scene were JAWS, a suitably jangly four piece who stirred up enough attention to sell out their debut EP, twice. A little over a year later, the band have segued slightly away from the swimmy sounds that became synonymous with B-Towns tropicana, moving in to moodier territory for their debut that, nevertheless, isn’t without a certain degree of sunshine.
