Preview: JAWS @ Exeter Phoenix

Indie rock trio Jaws will be touring their second album, Simplicity, this autumn, coming to Exeter Phoenix on Sunday 19th November. The Birmingham-based band have recently released the music video for their current single ‘Cast’, featuring footage shot on their latest UK tour, and if the exuberant reaction of their loyal fans shown in this video is anything to go by, we should expect a lively crowd!

The band have already extended their tour with several dates in response to the album’s success, and will be closing with a homecoming show at Birmingham’s O2 Institute.


Simplicity, which was released in November last year, shows a real progression from the band’s dreamy, escapist indie pop on 2014’s Be Slowly, moving towards a more mature and sophisticated sound, yet without straying too far from their indie roots. Met with critical acclaim, the album was praised by DORK Magazine as ‘the sound of a band truly becoming their own’.

Expect singles ‘Right in Front of Me’, ‘Just a Boy’ and ‘’17’ to be brought out, alongside plenty of other new songs and earlier releases like ‘Gold’, which is always popular with the crowd at their live shows.
