PAWS live in Glasgow, with members respectively from Tain (Highlands of Scotland), Edinburgh, and Glasgow. The band is made up of Philip, Joshua and Matthew. Phillip first met Joshua at their high school in Tain, and the pair instantly bonded over an immeasurable love of punk rock. They were later introduced to third member, Matthew, by a close friend from Glasgow, Nick Anderson. Nick had been harbouring plans to start a band with Phillip and Josh, but found they were one bass player short.
