2012’s release Cokefloat saw Paws display to us their unique ability to write simple punk songs that were catchy and and interesting. The darling, Sore Tummy being a perfect example.

The Scottish trio last week released their third album, No Grace, a considerably rougher and more confident record. With Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 handling the production it makes it difficult not to draw comparisons…yet having said that the brashness, enthusiasm and truly great songs allow the lads to stand on their own name.

The higher intensity is great but for fans of early stuff maybe a more melodic/softer number in there might have been nice. Super release though.
