Jaws Set to Play London’s Scala and Release New Single ‘Cast’

seen-london

SEEN loves the dreamy musical stylings of Jaws, who hail from her home city of Birmingham. Jaws are set to embark on a string of UK festival appearances, and their newly announced 2017 headline tour – a whistlestop jaunt round the UK which sees the band headline at dates in Manchester, London and Oxford.

‘Cast’ (released March 20th) is the endmost track to be taken from the band’s widely-lauded 2017 album ‘Simplicity’ – a release laden with melodic hooks and daydream sensibilities – lionised as their most accomplished and fully realised offering to date. ‘Cast’ evokes a sense of self-determination and of overcoming inner turmoil. An official video comprised of live footage from the Simplicity Tour is slated to follow the track’s release. The trio is: Connor Schofield (singer/guitar), Alex Hudson (guitar) and Eddy Geach (drums)

Making the most of an abundant harvest, Jaws will also offer up ‘Fruit’ as the B-Side to ‘Cast’. To be released April 10th ‘Fruit’ is an upbeat off-cut that was omitted from the ‘Simplicity’ song cycle.

B-Town’s A-Team will be leading the charge at headline dates in Manchester (April 25th), London (April 26th) and Oxford (April 27th), as well as a succession of UK festival slots that includes Y Not Festival, Hit The North and Live At Leeds. Nottingham’s ubiquitous indie trio Kagoule are set to pull their weight as main tour support for Jaws’ headline shows.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
