Paperwhite: “Gold” MP3 Stream

Nov 25, 2014

Paperwhite’s new single “Gold” sees the brother/sister duo dabbling in the same airy electro pop that have made previous “Got Me Goin” and “Pieces” so much fun. This is another playful song that should worm its way into a few soundtracks next year. Listen below. The band’s new EP Magic is out now on Duly Noted Records.

Tomorrow We Move To Hawaii

Premiere: “Bamboos Break” MP3 Stream

Nov 20, 2014

Tomorrow We Move to Hawaii’s new single “Bamboos Break” is a blast of electro rap that goes straight to the brain.

Check out our premiere of the tune below. The band’s debut full-length Independance is due out Feb 10 on Red Eye Transit. Preorder your copy here
