Brooklyn based trio Papertwin create beautifully dark and brooding electro-pop, with lavish helpings of dark and textured synthesizers and infectiously captivating vocal lines. Released a couple of days ago, the visual accompaniment for their track Alkaline draws you into their sonic world of dark and foreboding nostalgia, depicting microscopic images juxtaposed by the enormity of the track itself. Alkaline is a slow burner, it’s swirling electronics captivating and encircling you before a towering hook soars above its icy backing, releasing you from its synthetic grasp.
According to their Facebook, prior to forming Papertwin, its members were valet car parkers, land surveyors, piano tuners, landscape painters, denim tailors, movie popcorn poppers and sometimes still are. If they continue to produce tracks such as Alkaline, they won’t be needing to do any of that much longer.
