Now That I'm Here, I Never Want To Leave It Behind



It's always nice to discover a genuinely talented band on the ol' Myspace before there's a barrage of A & R and hype. Although such occasions are getting far less frequent these days, I was fortunate enough to come across Glaswegian four-piece Paper Planes.

Consisting of Scots Chad, Fraser and Craig and New Jersey born Jen, the demos I've heard so far remind me of Yeah Yeah Yeah's, with Karen-O-esque exclamations inbetween bursts of sharp, scathing guitars and a brilliant spoken word vocal on track The Sway.

Paper Planes have been together for all of a month now, but their demos show big potential and with far more depth than the above comparison might give them credit for.

Check out Exchange, a great indie-pop tale of adventure and excitement about swapping one country for another, something I'd love to do right now.

P.S. Apologies for it being an mp4 but it's straight from the mixing desk.
P.P.S. Check out Jen's brilliant paintings here.

Link isn't broken. I don't know what's happened with the band but their profile has been deleted/cancelled. Hope all is well with them. Carl
