Pawtooth
Pawtooth is an Asheville based band that consist of Penelope Zing on vocals, Dee Wulf on guitar, Nickey Pete on drums/vocals and Justin Lee on bass/vocals. "Arcadian Playground" - the 11 track debut full length album, released late 2013 - features groove heavy danceable songs, with an early '80s influence, but generally not as aggressive as their first cuts on the band's first EP, "Your Bullets Be Damned" which gives us the post punk, '80s influenced ear candy of straight ahead, hard hitting energetic songs. On "Arcadian Playground" you can expect more orchestration, samples, layered vocals and keyboards, as you will hear on album tracks "Ringbeat" and "Everwaves", as well as something akin to an infectious classic rock anthem on the track "The Hours". Front woman, Penelope Zing, has been compared to a mixture of PJ Harvey meets Grace Slick with inspired melodies and vocal styles reminiscent of early Siouxsie & The Banshees; Big, pronounced and unique.

Here is what some of the regional press had to say about Pawtooth:

"Ringbeat sounds like Siouxsie Sioux kidnapped The Go-Gos and tossed them in the Stooges Funhouse while Dick Dale dials in from outer space." (Chris Haire - Charleston City Paper, Charleston, SC)

"In one sentence: they present the kind of music that you can close your eyes and get lost in." (Shaquana Suggs - Hennon Observer, Winston-Salem, NC)

"Fronted by Penelope Zing, the band references some of the best of '80s and '90s regional rock, while bringing wholly original songs to the stage. ... Their raw energy is palpable, as is their practiced polish. They command the stage with self-possessed swagger, yet the quartet doesn't seem to take itself too seriously. ... the band's men provide a steady vocal canvas for Zing's lyrical prowess. She hits some electric notes at the top of her register, though most songs are sung low and gutsy, with something akin to a gleeful rage." (Alli Marshall - Mountain Xpress, Asheville, NC)
