Shune McNeary,

Just by listening to the first track, Electric Indigo, I knew that The Paper Kites were taking a different, but interesting direction. They were stepping away from the folk material they released on their first two EPs and first album, which even then demonstrated some evolution. The songs flow wonderfully and the single isn't the only great song on the album. The album has some very catchy lyrics and songs that never seem to drag out more than they need too! The band does an amazing job not only with their writing, but they do an amazing job creating an atmosphere that seems hazy, and mythical. This is an album that I will be listening too for a very long time now! This band is one of the greatest examples of how a band can evolve and do so very well at it!


Ryan Bell,

The shift they made from their most recent EP to this sound was a HUGE step forward. The vibe on songs like “Electric Indigo” and “Revelator Eyes” is spot-on for they do best. Excellent effort from an excellent band.

About The Paper Kites

Australian folk-rock group the Paper Kites initially formed around the duo of Sam Bentley and Christina Lacy, who had been performing and writing together since high school. Members David Powys (guitar/banjo), Sam Rasmussen (bass/synth), and Josh Bentley (drums) were recruited from other Melbourne-based bands in 2010 to complete the lineup that was responsible for their debut single "Bloom." With their warm, harmonic blend and acoustic-oriented indie folk-pop sound, their first EP, 2011's Woodland, began to pick up steam and by early 2012, the Paper Kites were headlining across Australia and had landed a couple of key television song placements. By the summer of 2012, they had more than enough material for a full-length album yet decided to continue developing their sound live, and issued a second EP instead called Young North. Their debut LP, States, finally arrived in late 2013 and they made their first trip to North America, first supporting Canadian group City & Colour, then embarking on their own headlining tour. Seeking a different direction for their sophomore album, the Paper Kites headed back to the U.S. to work with Seattle-based producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Manchester Orchestra) who helped them develop a more lush, synth-based sound. Released in late 2015, Twelvefour was a sort of concept album that was composed entirely between the hours of midnight and 4 A.M. ~ Timothy Monger
