about

For ‘Youth Culture Forever,’ the second album from PAWS, the band decamped to a studio in the woods just outside New York to hone and expand on the sound that saw their debut ‘Cokefloat!’ acclaimed by the likes of Pitchfork, SPIN and nominated in their homeland of Scotland for the Scottish Album of the Year awards.

Recording at Adam Pierce’s (Mice Parade/ Swirlies) studio in the woods outside of New York City, PAWS produced the album themselves in an attempt to strive for the sound that they had always imagined for the band. As Phillip Taylor from the band says “It feels like everybody considers our debut LP to be ‘lo-fi’, which really bothered us as we felt it was the complete opposite by comparison to our early releases.” He states that he wanted ‘Youth Culture Forever’ to be “bigger and louder, softer and quieter” and to “present the potential of our dynamic range more accurately than the first album”. This can be heard right from the album’s opener, ‘Erreur Humaine’, which opens with Taylor playing a gentle, lilting guitar riff and ruminating on the end of a relationship with typical searing honesty before the full band explode into life, sounding heavier, fuller, and darker than ever before.
