The Paper Kites
The Paper Kites new 5 track EP "Young North" was co-produced by ARIA Award winning Producer Wayne Connolly (The Vines, Josh Pyke, Silverchair) and the band at Melbourne's Sing-Sing Studio and was mixed at Sydney's Albert's Studio.
The new material has a more energetic and dynamic feel to it than their previous work while still maintaining the emotional intensity heard in the tracks from their debut EP "Woodland". The band set up and recorded much of "Young North" live in the studio rather than relying on extensive overdubs
which were used only to add atmosphere and texture. The earthy sounding instruments meld together to create a perfect backdrop for the band's layered and strikingly beautiful vocal arrangements.

The Paper Kites success to this point has been a combination of the traditional route of hard work on the road, combined with the power of
online "word of mouth".
The band have developed a very solid live audience by making sure each
and every show holds nothing back in terms of honesty and emotion, They
have toured extensively throughout Australia having sold out two national
headline tours of their own while also winning over audiences as the support
for the likes of Boy & Bear and Josh Pyke,

Online the band have proven to be somewhat of a phenomena. Fans from all
over the world have embraced them via social media and their DIY style
videos for the songs Featherstone and Bloom have had over 3 million
combined views on Youtube thus far.

The first video shot for "Young North" for the track "A maker Of My Time"
has already had nearly 30,000 views on Youtube in just over a week. The
one shot video was co-directed by the band and Jefferton James (Boy &
Bear, Avalanche City) and was filmed in remote bushland on the border of
NSW and Victoria. It's a striking piece of work, so simple yet so emotionally
affecting and joyous that it's hard to watch without breaking into a smile.
The Paper Kites have also come to the attention of a number of prominent
international film and television makers. The song "Featherstone" featured
in the series final episode of Grey's Anatomy and their song Bloom has also
been included in several US drama shows. Their music is now on the radar of
a couple of the most credible film directors in the world.

To celebrate the release of "Young North" The Paper Kites did shows
nationally in October and November 2012 to many sold out rooms.
