Taken from their debut EP The Tide, released today via Brighton’s boutique record label Folklore Sessions, watch Trails, the latest video from alt-folk duo Paper Hawk – a hypnotising whisper chronicling the throes of a volatile relationship (video by Six Bells Production).
Paper Hawks are a collaboration of two songwriters, Rebecca Brandler and Scott Booth, the project began after the two met a few months after both moving to Brighton to study. Rebecca heard Scott playing a cover of ‘Ocean’ by John Butler and instant musical sparks were ignited and she knew she wanted to write music together. The bond was then nurtured in a cold basement flat with muted rehearsals to avoid complaints from the neighbours but has proven to pay off, being nourished into a harrowingly beautiful EP.
The Tide is released today through Brighton’s boutique record label Folklore Sessions. The 4-track record signals the beginning of a new adventure for this emerging band. Alongside digital distribution on iTunes and Spotify, a limited run of 50 physical copies will be available in June, a month after the digital release date. Each record comes with a handwritten thank you letter, additional artwork, and a signed art print.
EP launch tonight at The Marlborough Theatre. Limited Tickets available here:
