Birmingham Indie Rockers, PAPER BUOYS, have announced details of their first release of 2020. LIAA (Love Is All Around) will be released on all major digital platforms on Friday 27th of March on the bands own label, Fade To Dust Records.
Since forming in 2016, PAPER BUOYS, have been a prominent name in the second city’s diverse musical landscape. From their debut single Fun, championed by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6Music, to the unrelenting Sharp As Razors and the anthemic fan favorite Wasted, all taken from their award winning debut album, PAPER BUOYS have carefully crafted their own authentic brand of Indie/Punk and established themselves as a solid live act.
2019 saw the release of two new singles, Chasing Ghosts and Time Won’t Wait, which showcased an evolution in the buoys sound, both musically and lyrically. The band, comprising of Chris Newey (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Stuart Lidgbird (Lead Guitar), Nick Wynne (Drums) and Jon Perks (Bass Guitar), have recently completed recording of their second studio album which was recorded at Magic Garden Studio and produced by Gavin Monaghan (The Twang / The Blinders). The album is due for release in September this year following a string of single releases between now and then.
“LIAA feels like the right song for us to kick start the year ahead” Said front man, Chris Newey. “It’s a no nonsense, Indie Rock banger with a distinctive PAPER BUOYS stamp on it.”
The new single will be accompanied by a self-produced music video with a tongue-in-cheek, Back To The Future theme. “We wanted to make a music video fast and with no budget. Jon had this ‘Doc’ costume for a fancy dress party so we created a loose story around that and filmed it all that night in short, one-take scenes.” Newey explained.
PAPER BUOYS are due to open for Red Rum Club at O2 Institute, Birmingham on Friday 10th April and will be announcing more live dates soon.
