The Paper Kites, TWELVEFOUR:

album review


The Paper Kites, TWELVEFOUR: ★★★1/2

The Melbourne five piece have returned with their second album Twelvefour which is based around the concept that creativity peaks between the wearisome hours of 12- 4 am. This can be heard at the heart of their indierock driven sound which attempts to add in a whimsical darkness to their traditionally lighter sound. Overall however the album falls flat, unable to present their sound in an entirely original or particularly effective way. However the tracks do mesh together in a way that is reminiscent of the long lonely driving scene presented in all indie and coming of age films. Track ‘bleed confusion’ is a standout resembling Father John Misty’s style, while tracks ‘i’m lying to you because I’m lost’ and opening single ‘electric indigo’ will also make you feel some feels (not all of them though).
