The Paper Kites Release 'Woodland + Young North EP Box Set' Today; City And Colour Support Tour Announced

Out today, Australian indie-folk outfit The Paper Kites release Woodland + Young North EP Box Set (Nettwerk Records), a wonderfully-inspired collection of layered, earthy instrumentations paired with beautiful vocal harmonies.

The standout tracks from their debut EP Woodland - “Bloom” and “Featherstone” (as prominently featured in the season 8 finale of Grey’s Anatomy) - have generated over 5.5 million combined YouTube views. The follow-up EP, Young North, married a more upbeat feel while maintaining the romantic appeal from Woodland. Above, watch the official music video for "Maker Of My Time" from the Young North EP.

Amongst the up and coming bands from Australia, The Paper Kites continue to build their hometown following, selling out shows with fellow countrymen Josh Pyke and Boy & Bear. This October, the quintet will cross waters for their North American debut, supporting City And Colour.

The band began with Sam Bentley and Christina Lacy playing local cafes in their hometown of Melbourne, Australia. When invited to play a local festival, they decided it was time to expand by adding David Powys, Sam Rasmussen and cousin Josh Bentley. “Sam and I worked together in a warehouse, Josh was my cousin and I liked his drumming…we liked David because he could sing and were big fans of his other band. It was never really an official ‘let’s start a band’ conversation, we just kind of fell into it,” says Bentley.

In the coming weeks, stay tuned for more information regarding their forthcoming debut studio album (Fall 2013).
