Sacred Paws - 6 Song EP
There is a lovely sense of togetherness about 6 Song EP, the spritely debut from Sacred Paws, that is both enchanting and endearing. Yes, there is an element of sameness, but Eilidh Rodgers' African-flavoured rhythms and Rachel Aggs' spidery guitar riffs create a steady backdrop for the duo's close-knit harmonies. Jaunty opener 'I Wonder' sets the tone: heavy percussion and melodic guitar are the order of the day; in songs like 'San Diego' and 'Vince' the vocals weave in and out like fair maidens around a maypole. It's altogether rather fun. A lively introduction to an act that promises much.
