aaamusic | On 20, Sep 2010
Paper Crows release their stunning debut single ‘Stand Alight’ on the
11th October They recently played their first ever show at White Heat
in London followed by a triumphant performance at Offset festival.
They are young upstarts with an incredibly promising future and have a
sound which is both contemporary with elements of dubstep and artists
such as Bat For Lashes and also harks back to the trip-hop days of
Portishead and Massive Attack.
Sultry Singer Emma Panas has been obsessively writing songs since she
was 14 years old and cites Kate Bush and Bjork as major influences.
She met her musical sparring partner Duncan McDougall eighteen months
ago at music college in Kilburn, London. The pair immediately bonded
in the corner of their vocal techniques class. Instead of paying
attention in lessons they wrote songs, then snuck off to Duncan’s
house to record them in his makeshift bedroom studio.
