Drowned in Sound -
No Grace is raw, quick and dirty, just as rock 'n roll was always intended. Glorious stuff.

As an experiment, ‘No Grace’ could go further. But PAWS continue to have fuzz defining their every step.

More than just the third PAWS record, No Grace is representative of a transformative period of time in the band’s life and is the gravel-throated affirmation of that 'do it or die' attitude that informs any great work of passion. It's the song you sing when you get kicked in the teeth; the decision you make to get back on your feet and rattle off another punch; it's the humility of defeat and the ecstasy of triumph because you never gave up. But more than anything, it's the sound of the pure fucking energy and joy that comes from making something with your whole heart.

As well as being a statement of intent, No Grace was that opportunity to go big or go home. So PAWS went big. After discovering a mutual appreciation between themselves and bassist/producer Mark Hoppus (Blink 182/+44), PAWS enlisted his support to help push these new songs to their wildest heights and pack the heftiest punch they could muster. And from the eponymous opener and first single, 'No Grace', it's clear the two are a perfect fit. Recorded last summer between Chem 19 in Glasgow and a private studio in Somerset, it's a partnership that strikes hard through the core of the record, from the anthemic gut-punch of 'N/A' to the thrashed out madness of 'Salt Lake' and 'Complete Contempt', PAWS’ third album distills the best of what came before it and builds on it with strength and confidence.
