You know how people used to ask, If you were stranded on a desert island, what one album would you choose to take with you? Well, first I would ask about electricity and whether or not there’d be access to alcohol, but I’ll play along. There are very few bands I could listen to for the rest of my life without hearing anyone else again. Besides Band of Horses and maybe a classical compilation album, I think I could go for The Paper Kites.
The album was recorded over a six week period, specifically between the hours of 12 and 4am, which is where the name of the album came from. The video for ‘Electric Indigo’, as well as all videos to follow from the album will be shot between these same hours. Naturally the album captures the magic that lives between those hours. This band is the perfect mix of modern nostalgia with an 80s soft rock feel. I can’t get enough of their music. Now with a new album entitled twelvefour, I wanted to share their single ‘Electric Indigo’ which is a favourite of mine off the album. These guys are just so insanely talented. I really hope to see them live soon.
Give it a listen below and let me know what you think. Do you love it?
