Paper Aeroplanes take flight for 2013 UK tour
Posted: 15th January 2013
Welsh MOR-folk outfit to perform string of shows in the spring, tickets go on sale now
Regular listeners to BBC Radio 2 and 6Music may well have heard the delicate harmonies of Paper Aeroplanes and assumed that the provider of such dulcet tones might be from the States. It's a fair assumption but, somewhat pleasingly, the duo hails from Wales, a region perhaps more famous at the moment for bruising metal and rampant rock.
Not so with this pair - think Haim, think Laura Marling, think Gemma Hayes, Wailing Jennys and, at a pinch, Allo' Darlin'. With all feet very firmly planted in the field of dreamy acoustic pop, with a healthy dose of folk lobbed in for good measure, Sarah Howells and Richard Llewellyn have quietly crafted some pleasing songs, not least "Safe Hands" and "We Are Ghosts".
Right now though, the duo are concentrating on a follow up to their most recent album, also entitled "We Are Ghosts", and the rather moreish EP "Time to Be" with confirmation of a full UK tour on the horizon.
Stops include Edinburgh on 12th May, followed by Glasgow, Manchester and many more until Oxford on the 25th. Prices start at £8, rising to £10 for London. Tickets on sale now.
Prior to all of this, Paper Aeroplanes will perform at Islington's Old Queen's Head on 6th February for just £5, available now.
