Indie duo The Paper Shades – Sarah Dollar, Jon Rixon – unveil the double A side single ‘Home/Strong’, out now via their new label Indie Kitchen Records. This is a sweetly solid pop offering, ahead of their debut studio album, due out later this year.
The duo explains: “We both like albums which are atmospheric and have a ‘sound- track’ type feel to them. We had this in mind whilst writing the album and when thinking about overall production. The first single ‘Home’ has a strong emphasis on rhythm and melody, it’s warm, full sound is balanced with space to evoke atmosphere…‘Strong’ is the second single on the double A side and is one of the more intimate and emotive of the album tracks. The track has a more singer/songwriter feel to it with acoustic guitar at its core and showcases harmonies throughout.”
Here’s their enchanting 2012’s EP ‘Where You Lay’.
