Paperwhite – Only Us

Paperwhite - Only Us

New York sibling duo Paperwhite return with dream pop number, ‘Only Us’.

It once again showcases their ability to put together a track full of catchy hooks, transcendent synths and soaring, spirited melodies.

“Whether it’s a global issue or a broken heart, we tend to look back with nostalgia on times that were simpler,” says the band about the song. “With change comes courage, so even with heavy lyrics, we wanted to add a little Paperwhite electricity into the mix. What better way to move forward than with a little spring in your step.”

The track is the third release off their forthcoming third EP.

Paperwhite – Get Away

Paperwhite

Paperwhite

Brooklyn’s brother-sister duo Paperwhite return from hibernation with flighty number, ‘Get Away’.

According to Katie Marshall, ‘Get Away’ is “the perfect song to start off our second round of releases. What feels so special about Get Away is that while it speaks of the power of freeing your mind, finding your escape, and getting away from it all, it’s inviting someone to join you”.

Taking more a futuristic tribal approach, ‘Get Away’ is a lush re-entrance for Paperwhite.

Those of you in Brooklyn can catch up with the band at The Knitting Factory on 10 January. Purchase tickets.

Now for ‘Something New’ from Brooklyn-based Secret Weapons.

Gerry Lange and Dan E. met in mathematics class and in 2014, they started making music together in secret until it was time to launch the duo that is Secret Weapons.

With influences from the ’80s, including Tears for Fears, Hall & Oates, and Cyndi Lauper, ‘Something New’ is a combination of electronic sounds from a former era with catchy indie pop that would definitely be classed as current.
