If you’re not dancing while listening to either of the Sacred Paws full-lengths, well… I’m going to have to ask you to sit down.

Founded by guitarist/vocalist Rachel Aggs (Shopping, Trash Kit) and drummer/vocalist Eilidh Rodgers, Sacred Paws rose from the ashes of their previous indie pop band, Golden Grrrls. Since 2013, the Glasgow-based band has been releasing straight bops, including their 2017 debut album Strike a Match, which won the 2017 Scottish Album of the Year Award, and their 2019 release, Run Around the Sun, out now on Merge Records.

Check out the gear Sacred Paws uses live below, and be sure to read more from Rachel Agg’s as guest editor of She Shreds Issue #18 here!
