"Review Liverpool Psych Fest Day 2"

PAUW meanwhile, who follow at the Blade Factory, are the first of the venue’s true Saturday showstoppers. With a pop edge toned to perfection they lather on the character with huge leaps of mystic eastern edge to their commanding hooks, Shambala is as anthemic as psychedelia gets. - Get Into This


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


2014 is the year that Holland is being quickly introduced to psychedelic rock band PAUW. With just a few home recorded demo’s, the band takes part in the travelling festival “Popronde”. With 38 bookings the group becomes the most demanded band in the history of the traveling festival. The four piece plays support shows for Temples, Elephant Stone and Kasabian. While being in the spotlight, they manage to record their debut EP with producer Roel Blommers. The EP is very positively received by critics around the country and single “Shambhala” is being crowned “Single Of The Week” by dutch music platform 3voor12 and Pinguin Radio.


The following year seems to become a promising one for PAUW. While playing a lot of shows, e.g. Noorderslag, Where The Wild Things Are, Paaspop, Dauwpop and London Calling, the band is building a strong reputation in their home country. Their first sold-out clubtour is a fact, and above all that their music is played live more than once on radio stations like 3FM and 3voor12 Radio. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Hubble telescope, the song “Visions” is written and performed live on Dutch TV show De Wereld Draait Door and in July released as an official single. The single made it also to “Single Of The Week” by 3voor12 and Pinguin Radio.   


Promoters outside the Netherlands start to discover PAUW as well and the band will play Liverpool Psych Fest (UK), VOID Fest (Germany), Celebration Day (France), Lisbon Psych Fest (Portugal) and several festivals in Belgium including Deep In The Woods and PLAY. They wrap up their festival summer at Lowlands Festival, Into The Great Wide Open. And with an exteded headlining clubtour in the fall ahead of them in the Netherlands, the four friends are showing themselves a lot. And if that’s not enough, they even find time to record their first album, which is produced again by Roel Blommers. The album will be released the autumn, the next chapter in an already exciting year for PAUW.


With a savage drummer, a bombastic bassist, a mesmerizing keyboardist and a charismatic guitarist with dreamy vocals, PAUW takes you on a magical and unforgettable trip that will remain with many for a long time.
