Paper Jackets, the captivating Silver Lake-based synth-pop sextet have premiered the music video for hit single “Trigger” with Atwood Magazine today. Taken from their re-released debut EP, Don’t Lose Your Head, Atwood shares that the “unhinged anthem is a vibrant and impassioned expression of unity” while encapsulating every pop, rock and synth influence of the band. The video, directed by Ivanna Borin, showcases their fun and creative history. Fans can check out the video and an exclusive interview with frontman James Mason on AtwoodMagazine.com today.
On the track, frontman James Mason shares “Spontaneous, delirious but not in denial , this is a song about falling right to edge of our limitations. Music makes us feel limitless, impervious to consequence and somehow even though deep down we know nothing comes without a price we’ve made peace with living for the moment and coloring outside the lines from time to time.”
Recently re-released via Selma Records, Don’t Lose Your Head showcases Paper Jackets’ unique sleek, souped-up style of synth-pop that equally takes its cues from the current crop of genre peers like Walk The Moon, Smallpools, CHVRCHES and Cherry Pools, but also legendary acts like The Ronettes and The Beach Boys. These decades-spanning influences and an overall indie aesthetic create a blend of pop and rock that’s all at once topical and timeless. Produced by Ethan Kaufmann (Avril Lavigne, Driver Friendly), Don’t Lose Your Head is available for streaming today at https://paper-jackets.lnk.to/MQzSNFP.
