Best New Bands of 2010 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD: #16 Paper Crows

Best New Bands of 2010 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD: #16 Paper Crows

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.

Vitals:
Hometown: London, UK
Band Members: Emma Panas and Duncan McDougall
Sound Soulmates: Kate Bush, a bolder XX and Portishead

Track of the Year:
“Stand Alight” – I posted the SoundCloud tracks because the original is sooooo good. Please listen.

Here is “Stand Alight (Monsieur Adi Remix)” MP3

Band of the Day (8.30.10) Paper Crows

30 Aug

BOD (8.30.10) Paper Crows

Paper Crows is the London synth duo Emma Panas and Duncan McDougall. They’re a mix of Kate Bush, a bolder XX and Portishead. I’ve got the only three tracks I can find on every playlist. 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?

They’re current tagline….
Stop. Revive. Survive. I’ll add Repeat.

They are really one of the best new bands hitting. I can’t believe they only have three tracks.
