Paper Jackets, the infectious and captivating 6-piece band that has been taking of the LA landscape, have dropped the music video for their pop-rock anthem “Girl” today. Premiering exclusively with Billboard, the video captures the band’s energetic live performance along with their colorful attitudes.
“’Girl’ is about being anxious, but not afraid to tell someone you love them” shares front man James Mason.“There’s like a nervous excitement around crossing that threshold in a relationship. I find it especially entertaining when people start acting all crazy and then they realize it’s just because they are in love.”
“Girl” is the latest single from the band’s debut release, Don’t Lose Your Head. Re-released via Selma Records, the 8 tracks showcase 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.
With plenty of shows booked and additional music due out later this year, Paper Jackets has set themselves up for an impressive and exciting 2019. Stay tuned to Paper Jackets’ social media accounts and http://www.paperjackets.com/ for more news soon.
