The Paper Kites Announce National Tour & New Single ‘St Clarity’

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 21, 2013

Melbourne-based five-piece indie crew The Paper Kites have announced plans to kick things up a gear with a new single, their debut full length on the way and a rather large Australian tour also on the horizon.

Having won over thousands of fans with their two previous EPs, the band will now be putting their focus towards debut album States, having just dropped first single St Clarity as well as a list of tour dates that will leave you short of breath just reading.

St Clarity is the perfect introduction to the vivid textures and thick imagery the band will incorporate into their debut LP, and demonstrates their level of professionalism – they really do mean business. The clip for St Clarity (below) was overseen by two-time ARIA winning director Natasha Pincus, who you may know from such underground clips as, oh, say Gotye’s Somebody That I Use To Know.

Through word of mouth and excellent releases, the band’s fan base has grown exponentially, and it’s to these swelling crowds that The Paper Kites will be returning as they embark on a 10-date national tour kicking off in Newcastle. Already, the band have some snazzy feathers in their cap in the form of high-profile support slots for the likes of Josh Pike and Boy & Bear.

Also worthy of note is the fact that City And Colour have selected The Paper Kites as main support for their upcoming US tour. No biggie. There’s clearly something to see here.

Tickets to all shows are on sale now.
