The melodic little love diddy ‘Paws’ from the gang in Runaway Brother, has been delivered. Finally. Indicating, of course the fantastic announcement of their new 12 song album, ‘New Pocket’.
Their handlers at Tiny Engines is fabulously excited about it. As well as others in the indie galaxy.
And there’s no wondering about why.
‘Paws’ is a gentle glide of majestic psalms of wants and needs, neatly dictated and easily digested by our hungry ears.
Delectable tune – that’s what we’re saying, if you get our drift.
“Much like its critically-acclaimed 2015 debut full-length, Mother, New Pocket’s impeccable melodies, soaring harmonies and all-around killer writing chops are on full display.”
But in addition, we think (at least with Paws), there is a marked amount of maturity that has seeped into the writing and aesthetics. ‘Paws’ is a remarkable (in some sense) departure and evolution for the band’s output, where the tone is maligned, confidence, and much more artfully articulate in communicating their emotions to the audience.
From the more emo/alt driven rock in ‘Mother’, to us, ‘Paws’ just helps us look at the band in a slightly different light.
And that is a fabulous thing, in our estimation.
We’re looking forward to see how the rest of the song on ‘New Pocket’ explains itself, if ‘Paws’ is any indication for what’s to come in the album. And in coordination with the new album, their early 2018 tour dates have been announced.
Should be fun for all.
Anywho, ‘Paws’ is right up CHF’s alley, to be blunt.
We dig it. And we think you should too.
The digital album drops on February 16, 2018.
