We have a tonne of time for this most excellent indie rock act from London.
Lead singer and guitarist Danny Collins asks, “can you feel the emotion inside of me?” A fitting question as the real-talk, heartfelt lyrics resonate from the get-go. ‘Favourite Thing’s melodic bass (courtesy of bassist Aaron Forde) and fuzzy guitar work result in a powerful, direct and infectious indie rock and roll record. Topped off with a horn section, this one is playful and fierce at the same time – a trait that JW Paris have mastered since starting out just a few years ago. They added:
“We were sitting in the middle of Joshua Tree thinking about some of the struggles and pressures, (ironic we know) you have being in a band and working full time and various other things that come into play, and actually when we sat back and thought about where it all started and where we’d come, it’s actually quite special. Sometimes, like most things you really have to sit back to appreciate what you have and what you’re fighting to achieve. For us this track was about appreciating the struggle and hopefully speaks to others in the same way.”
