Last week, Papertwin shared the music video for The Pool, which was directed by Michael Delaney using found footage from VHS tapes found all over thrift stores in Los Angeles and partially edited using analog video equipment. The track is lifted from the band’s forthcoming EP, ‘Vacation’. Watch it below via YouTube.
‘Vacation,’ the forthcoming EP from Papertwin via Druyan Records is their third studio recording project (due out on June 24, 2016). It was self recorded in their New York apartments and mixed by Abe Seiferth (yeasayer,DFA Studios), mastered by Heba Kadry (Neon Indian, Beach House). Dreamy, dark, nostalgically sci-fi, ‘Vacation’ features analog synthesizers, melodic guitar lines, driving percussion, and reflective vocals. Drawing on influences from The Cure to Gillian Welch, this EP builds upon the band’s previous recordings.
