Jaws call themselves dream-pop and hail from Birmingham. This is their third album; we quite like their last, Simplicity, as it’s melodic and clever while being inoffensive. You can listen to it and it’s fine, or not listen and your brain is fine filtering it out. This new one is a bit stronger and more laid back, but pretty much more of the same.
In the good places it reminds us of Delphic, the synthy dance / rock band from Stockport, though it’s more pop and less euphoric. You could push it a bit and compare them to Death Cab For Cutie, too (especially penultimate Please Be Kind), but that’s being really generous.
