Jaws – Friend Like You (Single Review)

Rating:

Fresh from selling out a series of live dates including a packed headline show at the über-trendy Old Blue Last venue in London, Birmingham garage-pop act Jaws begin the New Year on a high with the release of ‘Friend Like You’, a new single that’s armed to the teeth with glistening chords, billowing synths and an atmosphere of somewhat tainted optimism that should appeal to fans of Sigur Rós and many others. The track demonstrates a marked maturity in the bands’ sound but rest assured, they haven’t turned into miserly old men, for the new single is included in an accompanying bumper EP release entitled “Milkshake” that comprises JAWS’s previous singles and will be released on April 22nd. Not bad eh?
