Urgent is the first word that springs to mind when this new track from Brummie trio Jaws gets going. ‘Driving at Night’ combines the raw energy of the Jam, the expansive vision of Editors, the intensity of the Courteeners and a sprinkle of that Doves fairy dust to create a song that is balanced precariously on the high wire between hope and despair. There is a sense of 80s indie and shoegaze in the guitar sound and the distant vocals but this also sounds incredibly present, contemporary and, like I said, urgent.
