Daddy Issues:

Ever heard something that sounded so much like a great band name that you were tempted to form a band just so you could use it? That's how the feminist indie pop trio Daddy Issues first came together. In 2014, Jenna Moynihan was attending a show at a D.I.Y. venue in her home town of Nashville, Tennessee called the Farm when she saw someone had written "Daddy Issues" in large letters on the bathroom wall. Moynihan was quite taken with the phrase, convinced it must be the name of a group that had appeared at the Farm. Some online research convinced Jenna that was not the case after all, so she decided she'd form a band and call it Daddy Issues. Moynihan rounded up a pair of like-minded friends, Emily Maxwell and Jenna Mitchell, and even though they didn't have much experience on their instruments, soon Moynihan was holding down lead guitar and vocals, Maxwell was playing drums, and Mitchell was their bassist, playing music that was part punk, part pop, and part grunge. Daddy Issues released a single, "Pizza Girl," in May 2014, with "Ugly When I Cry" following in September. By the summer of 2015, the band had attracted the attention of Nashville-based indie label Infinity Cat Recordings. The label gave Daddy Issues a break by releasing an eight-song cassette, Can We Still Hang, as part of their subscription cassette series. The trio soon struck a deal with Infinity Cat, and a split single with White Reaper was released in December 2015. Daddy Issues devoted much of 2016 and early 2017 to live work, including tours with Tacocat and Diet Cig, and in May 2017 they released their first full-length album, Deep Dream.

 

PAWS:

Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, PAWS (all caps) are a trio who play indie rock with punky ferocity and a remarkable knack for pop hooks. Phillip Taylor, Josh Swinney, and Matt Scott formed as a cabin studio project and started recording at their first practice session. Following a small run of cassettes and a split 7" single for Edinburgh-based Gerry Loves Records, PAWS released their Mermaid EP and then went on to tour for most of 2010. Their debut album, Cokefloat!, was released on Fat Cat Records in 2012. The record was well received by the music press, and their subsequent heavy touring in the U.S. and Europe -- alongside the likes of Japandroids, Bleached, the Breeders, and Ty Segall -- amassed a dedicated and loyal fan base by 2013. They then parted ways with bassist Matt Scott, and Ryan Drever was recruited to fill the vacant space. Later in 2013, the trio traveled to upstate New York, where they recorded their sophomore album at Mice Parade-founder Adam Pierce's home studio. Titled Youth Culture Forever, the record was released in 2014. It went on to receive very positive reviews and made many end-of-year lists as well as being nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year award. The band toured Europe and North America extensively to promote the release, including a well-documented schedule-clash with former Smiths frontman Morrissey. Completed in the summer 2015 but not released until 2016, their third effort, No Grace, boasted the production talents of blink-182's Mark Hoppus.

    “Flirty, flighty girl pop never sounded better, even from The Runaways.” – Cashbox Magazine (Canada)

    When singer and guitarist Jenna Moynihan saw the phrase “Daddy Issues” scribbled on the bathroom wall of a now-defunct Nashville DIY venue, she mistakenly assumed it was the name of an all-girl punk outfit sure to become her next favorite band. Upon realizing that no such band existed, Moynihan and friends Emily Maxwell (drums) and Jenna Mitchell (bass) picked up their instruments, taught themselves how to play and started their own band. Three years later, Daddy Issues are gearing up to release their full-length vinyl debut Deep Dream, out 5/19 via Infinity Cat Recordings.

    The band originally caught Infinity Cat’s eye after tastemaker Casey Weissbuch offered the trio a spot on the cassette series he curates for the label, which has hosted releases from artists like Rozwell Kid, Colleen Green and Guerrilla Toss over its three-year history. Days after submitting their tape in the summer of 2015, the band signed to Infinity Cat as official artists, releasing a 7″ split with Louisville band White Reaper later that year. Shortly thereafter, the band started work on Deep Dream with producer and label owner Jake Orrall (JEFF The Brotherhood, Colleen Green). Combining the sounds of ’80s alternative, ’90s grunge and ’00s pop, Daddy Issues tackle the difficulties of friendship, heartbreak, mental health, sexual assault and a number of other issues that come with the package of youth in the modern world.

    PAWS are Phillip Taylor, Josh Swinney and John Bonnar.

    In 2012 the band released the Misled Youth EP followed shortly by their debut full length album Cokefloat!, which garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, The BBC and SPIN. That album, recorded by ex-Test Icicle, Rory Attwell on the boat/studio “Lightship95,” introduced the band’s explosive songwriting to the world, boiling down emotionally charged lyrics with the whiplash snap of punk. The band soon after toured with Japandroids, We Are Scientists and The Cribs and their live show proves time and again their comfort on the stage, leading SPIN Magazine to place the band at number four on their “Top 50 Best Acts at SXSW Festival in 2013.”
