Sacred Paws Run Around The Sun Colored Vinyl LP + Digital Download Card

Sacred Paws were born from the ashes of Rachel Aggs (vocals, guitar) and Eilidh Rodgers (vocals, drums) previous indie pop group Golden Grrrls. Despite Aggs living in London and Rodgers in Glasgow they set about recording their debut EP after signing to the Mogwai-owned label Rock Action. They released a 6-track EP, Six Songs, in 2015, followed by a single, "Everyday" in 2016.

They then embarked on a U.K. tour in support of the record, during which they played alongside acts like Mogwai, Veronica Falls, Tuff Love, and Future Islands. In the same year they also performed a BBC 6 Music session for DJ Marc Riley, and appeared at Glasgow's Celtic Connections Festival.

Aggs continued to play in both Shopping and Trash Kit, but in spite of this, she and Rodgers were dedicated enough to find the time to record Sacred Paws' debut LP. In 2016, they issued two singles in advance of the album's release, "Everyday" and "Rest".

Sacred Paws have a natural inclination not to take things too seriously. You can hear it all the way through a conversation with it's two members, guitarist Rachel Aggs and drummer Eilidh Rodgers, punctuated by rolls of giggles and thoughtful pauses, and you can hear it in the light touch they bring to their music, a jangly blend of indie pop full of fizzing world rhythms and bright horns.

Run Around the Sun brims with upbeat reflections on growing up and looking back. Shimmering guitar riffs dance between snappy beats and swooning melodies that will have crowds committing to far more than a simple head-bob.
