Generic Indie Jangle Pop guitars may be all you hear if you turn on any Indie-inclined radio station in 2020, but up and coming artist Paper Trails found a way to bring the captivating alchemy of New Wave right into the 21st century with their progressive Indie single “Inside Out”.
Listening to the Smiths is a rather bitter-sweet experience these days. The only thing that will linger after you hear Inside Out is an earworm.
As soon as the punchy passion-soaked chord progressions start to carve the melodies, you’ll be hit with the excitement of ingesting the energetic ingenuity which was perceptibly poured into Inside Out.
Falling in perfect synergy with the instrumentals are the vocals which offer an evocative sting which is just as potent as Brian Molko’s along with the same accessible warmth as the likes of Paul Draper.
It isn’t every day we get to hear an artist with such a distinctively absorbing guitar style paired with soulfully connectable vocals. Paper Trails’ unique amalgamation of Prog Rock, Britpop and Indie definitely isn’t to be missed.
