Names such as The Civil Wars, Laura Marling, Suzanne Vega and Fleetwood Mac are often mentioned when describing Paper Aeroplanes but most would agree that the band have a sound completely of their own. From the wild shores of West Wales, Sarah and Richard have been working together for 5 years, concocting intricate, heartfelt songs about the things that really matter in life. With burgeoning support across the UK and Europe, live is where Paper Aeroplanes really shine. Folk infused alternative pop songs are topped off with Sarah’s truly beautiful, spine-tingling voice, which could break even the hardest of hearts. “An elixir for any weary soul that needs a little healing”.
On February 11th Paper Aeroplanes release the Circus EP, a bundle of new tracks and remixes led by one of the most honest and powerful songs from their critically acclaimed 2013 album Letter Letters.
“A truly beautiful album of perfect pop vignettes – affirmation if it is needed of the mounting acclaim that surrounds them… a band on the edge of greatness” – Album of the month – Folk Radio
“As soon as you’ve identified one highlight, another comes along. There are no duds here, and the album as a whole has a beautifully judged balance. Little Letters is a very fine record. It may come to be regarded as a classic. “- North West Folk
