This is our first fan driven Award. Paper Crows had the 5th largest audience views in 2010. That’s amazing for a band that has very little out there. We love Paper Crows here at NBD.
They met at music college in Killburn and they started recording in hidden session in Duncan’s bedroom. If this is what they create hidden in a loft, what will we get with a studio recording? Their first single was only released on October 11th, 2010, so these chaps are VERY, VERY new, so let us be the first to say…They will be your new favorite band starting today and all of 2011.
