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

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.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
