Scissor Sisters' Paddy Boom couldn't have said it any better, "You'd better be cranking up Paw Paw, blowing the speakers and pissing off the neighbours cos man, they are rockin!" Fed on a nutricious diet of Bowie, Depeche Mode and LCD Soundsystem, this London trio of James, Eve and Zoë are a promising new electro-pop act emerging on the British music scene who are impressing both their peers and critics.
The three have been working together for a few years and initially struck a connection with their common love for "sleazy electro beats and sweet pop harmonies." After collaborating on records for ex Spice Girl Emma Bunton, Boy George and Sarah Nixey, the three will finally spread their own wings as Paw Paw this summer with their single "Wired OK." Release date is set in the U.K. for July 18 on Albino Records.
A video is currenctly being prepared by actor/director Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Office) to give Paw Paw that little push into the mainstream. The group kindly allowed me to stream "Wired OK" for you to sample. It is an accomplished slice of subtle electro pop with glowing synths and sweet harmonies that has me curious for more from this threesome.
