Paper Tongues are an alternative rock band from Charlotte, North Carolina. Managed by Randy Jackson and signed to A&M/Octone Records, they are definitely trying to make a name for themselves. Their first step was made with the release of their self-titled debut album.
Starting the album with a significant push, Trinity is a great way to introduce an album. While the verses have serious strength, the hooks are catchy and strong enough to bust some speakers. The album doesn’t slow down, keeping the energy high with heavy bass, strong vocals, and light electronics filling in the details. Their hit song, Ride to California, moves into Get Higher, which bats clean up. Both songs have their strengths and seem to standout. A Surprise standout came on track 6, Soul, which is high intensity with a fun beat and great lyrics.
Overall, the album is a nice combination of alternative rock and upbeat pop. The music isn’t anything different, but it will definitely create a following for this young band.
