Thanks to the likes of Belle and Sebastian, Primal Scream, the Pastels, and more, Glasgow holds a special place in the hearts of those who like their noise-rock served with a side of jangle-pop. The short-lived Slumberland trio Golden Grrrls were one such cult group, and after the band dissolved in 2014, members Rachel Aggs (also of Shopping and Trash Kit) and Eilidh Rodgers formed Sacred Paws. Earlier this year, the pair released their debut LP, Strike a Match, which is anchored by the groovy single “Everyday” (a song that was originally released in fall 2016).

Without ever hitting you over the head with saccharinity, “Everyday” evokes sunshine thanks to Aggs’ bright Afrobeat guitars and Rodgers’ bouncy drums. “Everyday” is so upbeat that its melancholy narrative might not be immediately evident: “I will always love you/I, I, I’ll be thinking of you” sings Rodgers with an air that is equal parts yearning and assured. It’s that combination, the acknowledgement that joy can still exist within troubling times, that allows “Everyday” to voice a deeper truth.
