Papertwin Premieres New Single “Happy Half Lives”

Papertwin has returned with the release of their new single, “Happy Half Lives” ahead of their upcoming record Family PortraitsCheck out the premiere hereFamily Portraits is due out via Druyan Records on 11/15.

Regarding the inspiration behind the song, the band explains: “Taking inspiration from Edward Hopper’s painting Room In New York, this song examines the disparity between our inner and outer lives. Who we think we are versus how we are seen and judged by others. Questioning whether you were even born into the right body at the right place or the right time. 

The silence between two people sitting in a room can be both ominous and comforting all at once.”

Papertwin started playing music together in 2009, formed by Max Decker after narrowly escaping a lucrative career as a landscape painter. After two homespun EPs and a long hiatus, the band is set to release their first full length album Family Portraits via Druyan Records.

Recorded in Decker’s home studio in Massachusetts with longtime friend Francis Cardinale and receiving guidance from Nick Shopa, the LP was mixed by Jorge Elbrecht (Tamaryn, Sky Ferriera, Japanese Breakfast) and mastered by Heba Kadry (Bjork, Slowdive, Ryuchi Sakamoto).
