PAWS channel major R.E.M. vibes on new song "The Watering Hole"

April 10, 2019

Glasgow trio PAWS new album, Your Church On My Bonfire, accounts for several long years marked by devastating losses and broken relationship for vocalist and guitarist Phillip Taylor. But rather than let these massively life-altering changes overwhelm or drive them into silence, Phillip –– along with drummer Josh Swinney and bassist John Bonnar –– chose to embrace them, and the result is the band’s strongest material yet.

Today, PAWS share another promising new cut from Your Church On My Bonfire called “The Watering Hole.” Produced by Andy Monaghan of Frightened Rabbit, Your Church On My Bonfire comes out April 26 on Ernest Jenning Record Co.

Pre-orders are available now.

“The Watering Hole” is just one example of the leaps and bounds that this new era of PAWS takes on Your Church On My Bonfire. It joins an already expansive and diverse discography for the trio that includes the 2016 Mark Hoppus-produced No Grace, Youth Culture Forever (2014), and Cokefloat! (2012).

Your Church On My Bonfire was recorded in Scotland in October 2018. Producer and mixing engineer Andy Monaghan (Frightened Rabbit) brought out a gentler side of PAWS previously masked by noisy guitars and raucous drums. Whereas No Graceshowcased the trio at their most personally withdrawn, letting the instrumentation bear the emotional load, Your Church finds a band unafraid to lay themselves bare.

Taylor’s introspection shines on songs like first single “Not Enough,” “What We Want,” a ballad about coming to understand his father - and coming to terms with their tumultuous relationship - in the aftermath of his passing, and “The Slow Sprint,” which features vocals from Gregory and the Hawk vocalist Meredith Godreau and offers an outstretched hand of hope to a lost soul struggling to find their place.

Though PAWS have never shied away from using their music to forge emotional connections, Your Church On My Bonfire is a direct invitation for listeners to take an honest look at themselves, their relationships and the world around them and find beauty, and kinship in the smallest things.
