New Album ‘On The Train Ride Home’ Out Now
Produced by Tom Iansek & frontman Sam Bentley, the band sustains their midnight mood with this latest offering. A mostly acoustic collection, Bentley croons an album for the escapists, the street wanderers, the lovers and the lonely. The sincerity and brevity of the songs leave behind a space between each track that is personal and thought-provoking, simple stories, relatable and poetic, hanging in the air like smoke plumes. With minimal instrumentation, the arrangements remain sympathetic, rich and honest. Late night longings both romantic and heartbreaking, robust with hope, The Paper Kites deliver one of their most beautiful records to date.
Collaborating with Los Angeles film-noir artist Gina Higgins on the album’s artwork, the band revealed On The Train Ride Home is the first part of a two-part release, with the second album On The Corner Where You Live to be released in August.
The Paper Kites are currently in Connecticut working with American producer Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) on the second record.
