Scotland On Sunday, Sacred Paws, 15 March 2015

Glasgow duo Sacred Paws have been putting a spring in our step since we first heard their Six Songs EP, which comes out on Mogwai’s Rock Action Records tomorrow [Monday 16 March].

Guitarist Rachel Aggs and drummer Eilidh Rodgers share vocal duties, and somehow manage to conjure up memories of both of classic C86 indie and the joyous pop of Zimbabwe’s Bhundu Boys. The result is an uplifting sound which demonstrates that with the right songs, two musicians are more than capable of making great music. Sacred Paws play Sneaky Pete’s on 25 March and Mono the following night, before embarking on dates in England and Wales. They then return to Scotland for Counterflows Festival in Glasgow on 5 April. Check out Sacred Paws track Vince below, then listen to the EP and go and see them live:
