The brainchild of guitarist and vocalist Chell Osuntade, Fold Paper create driving, wiry post-punk. With their second ever single, Nothing To Report, the band announce their signing to revered indie label Royal Mountain Records and deliver a ripping, righteous and electric tangle of twisted guitars and pounding drums.

Osuntade explains, “It’s kind of a reckoning with the notion of people not supporting you or believing in what you’re doing; but then your name lives on their tongue and they always wanna know what you going on…it’s weird, the paradoxical feeling of being talked about yet overlooked so; nothing to report”

Rounded out by Brendyn Funk (guitar), Rob Gardiner (drums) and Mitchell Trainor (bass), Fold Paper are led by the Nigerian-born, Michigan-raised and Winnipeg-based Osuntade, an enigmatic frontman who delivers almost-spoken-word lyrics searing with intent. Their raw, jittery and energetic brand of post-punk has seen them share the stage already with bands like Pile, Cola, Holy Fuck and Stuck (who’s Greg Obis mastered this track), the band are heading out on the road on their first UK tour including a stop at The Great Escape Festival and Focus Wales, before returning to Canada for Calgary’s East Town Get Down and Sled Island festivals.
