Australia’s The Paper Kites have announced some new North American tour dates in support of their upcoming sophomore release, twelvefour, which drops on August 28th.
Determined to capture a bigger and bolder sound, the group travelled to Seattle to record with Grammy-nominated producer, Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Manchester Orchestra, Fleet Foxes).
Written entirely between midnight and four in the morning, twelvefour is a concept record that explores the theory that an artist’s creative peak lays within these hours. For two sleepless months lead singer/guitarist Sam Bentley worked, reversing his sleep patterns and penning 30 songs in his home studio. “I got to the end and thought, I’m never doing that again,” Sam laughs.
Check out their video for the track Electric Indigo:
