After capping off their phenomenal 'twelvefour' tour in 2015, Melbourne-based indie-folk band The Paper Kites are set to make an NZ comeback this March. They'll be playing Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland in celebration of their latest studio album 'On The Corner Where You Live'.
"After spending so much time touring and recording overseas over the past few years, we are so happy to finally bring these new songs to New Zealand. We can't wait to head back to some of our favourite cities around the country and share this new album with our home crowd!" - The Paper Kites
The Paper Kites have earned a loyal, organic fan base all over the world. With monumental streaming numbers, 200 shows across the globe in just under three years, and recent Gold accreditation in the US with nearly 700,000 copies of their track 'Bloom' being sold in the country, The Paper Kites are Australia's quiet achievers.
The band's world-class songwriting prowess shines on their fourth and most recent album 'On The Corner Where You Live'. This album was co-produced with Grammy-Award winner Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) at his studio in Connecticut—a 120-year old Victorian era home that the band lived and recorded in for five weeks.
"It's a collection of stories about these characters all living in an apartment building; I wanted to capture moments, feelings, it's about people and their stories." - Sam, lead vocals, The Paper Kites
The album is best listened to from start to finish, as each story seeps into the next. Meditative yet complex, 'On The Corner Where You Live' is an album for loyal fans of The Paper Kites but also one that's guaranteed to draw new audiences too.
