JW Paris – in session for John Kennedy – Radio X – October 29, 2022 – Radio X, London –
JW Paris tonight. Something new and something worth a listen to more than once. JW Paris is a three piece who got together just prior to the Pandemic three years ago. And they’ve been racing to catch up ever since.
A blurb from a recent post from Gotobeat gives some biographical information on the band:
JW Paris are a London based alt-indie band who have recently signed a publishing deal with Anara Publishing, & supported the likes of Pretty Vicious, Slaves, The Amazons and Yonaka to name just a few. Their thrashy new sound has been developing from birth, with both Aaron (Vocal / Bass) and Danny (Vocal / Guitar) knowing each other like brothers, as their Dad’s were in the same band throughout the 90’s. This meant that their sound builds on influences ranging from Smashing Pumpkins, The Dandy Warhols, Nirvana, FIDLAR, Blur and Suede, which in turn gives them a raw anglo-american, alt-rock swagger with the vocal delivery, phrasing and harmonies that wouldn’t sound out of place in the brit-pop heyday. JW Paris have been described as a ‘Band to watch in 2019’ (Fred Perry Sub Culture) including coverage across zines like GigSlutz, RockShot and Some Might Say. All shouting about their songs as ‘organic al-indie singalongs’ (GigSlutz, 2019) and ‘Their riffs are incredibly catchy, a vehement angst ingrained in their sound’ (Indie Underground, 2019). JW Paris already have a string of great singles under their belt including ‘Darker Side of Paradise’, ‘Rapture’ and ‘Radio’, all mixed by Hugo Nicolson (Grammy award winner who has worked with Primal Scream, Radiohead and Bjork) and mastered by John Davis at Metropolis (U2/Noel Gallagher). These singles have seen coverage across Sky Sports, BT Sports and taken up as a Team GB 2019 sponsorship song.
They’re getting ready to head out on the road this month, so be on the lookout.
