Ending 2012 on a high note with the success of their singles 'Toucan Surf' and 'Surround You' that were accompanied by a flurry of accolades for their lush and intelligent garage pop, young Birmingham four piece Jaws entered the year with four sold out shows across the UK with fellow B-towners Swim Deep and a packed headline show at London's Old Blue Last.
Now comes the new single from the band with 'Friend Like You'. Showcasing the rounding-out and maturation of their sound, 'Friend Like You' revels in shimmering guitars, beaconing synths and a simultaneously uplifting and poignantly bittersweet refrain, a glowing distilment of grungey pop through an open-air haze.
Along with b-side 'Breeze', the new single is included in an accompanying bumper EP release titled 'Milkshake' that rounds up the bands previous singles and is released April 22nd digitally and on limited vinyl.
With the new single and it's accompanying 'roll-up' EP, JAWS present both an impressive summation of their output thus far and a firm indication of an even brighter year ahead.
