Words: Saam Das
I wrote about Paper Crows in November, after seeing them support Clock Opera but they haven't had the Surfacing treatment so as a reward for unleashing an ace new song, here we go.
Debut single 'Stand Alight' is available to listen to in that post where I reviewed them live. I felt it was them "bringing Kate Bush into the 21st century with some style" and also compared the duo to something approaching a "dubstep version of Bat For Lashes".
Their second single ('Follow The Leader') is out in February but to keep us keen in the meantime, they've put a stream up of 'Fingertips' on Soundcloud. Which may or may not be its B-side/other A-side. 'Fingertips' is a serene offering and its Portishead leanings simply emphasise the beauty of Emma Panas' ethereal vocals. Enticing stuff.
