Paper Boats

Formed in the summer of 2012 - 80's inspired, New-Wave, Dreampop outfit Paper Boats have taken the alternative scene by storm, building themselves a representable popularity across the London scene as well as accumulating a strong American online following.

The success of their latest summer single "Holidays" pushes Paper Boats deeper into the Dreampop scene. With warm shimmering guitars and peaceful airy vocals, often compared to a combination of The Cure, M83 and Wild Nothing, Paper Boats pack together an authentic summer cocktail.

"This UK five-piece is a tropical dream-pop adventure. If Carousel and Cub Sport went on summer vacation together, it would sound something like this" - All Things Go Music

- "Holidays’ sees Paper Boats cherry-pick aspects from 80′s pop to cultivate a suitably nostalgic cut" - When The Gramophone Rings

- "Take yourself out of your hectic lifestyle for 3 glorious minutes and indulge" - Scientists of Sound
