Paper Hawks- stir up alt folk dreams in "Trails"

The track Trails is from Paper Hawk's "The Tide" EP recorded in the living room of their Brighton (UK) flat. This duo stirs in mystery, and drama in their hushed tones creating evocative pieces with nuances of sound. In listening to Trails and knowing this was a home recording I imagine that they must have extremely quiet neighbors to pull this off. I am glad they were able to.

Paper Hawk is an alt-folk duo currently based in Brighton, who combine intricate guitar driven melodies with hushed tones and raw confessional lyrics. A collaboration of two songwriters swiftly saw them playing across the country with sets at Glastonbury, 2000 Trees, YNOT and the Alternative Escape Festival.
The Tide is a collection of songs written with a hand-on-heart approach and striking honesty. Produced by Josh Trinnaman (the brain of jazz-IDM fusion band, Luo), the intimate guitar and vocal arrangements are brought to life with rich soundscapes and electronic ambience, creating a dream-like atmosphere that draws you in and keeps you captivated.
Released through Brighton’s boutique record label, Folklore Sessions, the 4-track record signals the beginning of a new adventure for this emerging band. Alongside digital distribution on iTunes and Spotify, a limited run of 50 physical copies will be available a month after the release date. Each record comes with a handwritten thank you letter, additional artwork, and a signed art print.
