The Australian band, The Paper Kites, have released a series of excellent EPs and a full length album filled with delightful tunes. The last recorded output was States, issued in 2013. Recently, they visited Seattle, WA to record their second full-length album.

The Paper Kites

Yesterday, on their Facebook page, they announced the sneak listen to a song from the new album, “Electric Indigo”, which I missed (DAMN!).  The song was debuted by Triple J’s Good Nights program, hosted by Linda Marigliano. Linda described “Electric Indigo” with “vocals that yearn, melodies that burn”. Thus far, the song is not available for streaming (not that we haven’t wasted an hour trying to locate a stream because we have).

It is also noted that the new Paper Kites album is being titled Twelvefour, and is expected August 28.  It is currently available for pre-order at iTunes, here! When a stream and/or specific release date becomes known, I will post everything. So…stayed tuned!

In the meantime, give similar bands like The Middle East (who are no longer together), and The Starry Field a shot.
