After the success of their critically acclaimed EP ‘Where You Lay’, folk-indie duo The Paper Shades have now returned with their latest single ‘Strong’
First and foremost, what grabs you when The Paper Shades song strikes up is the beauty of the harmonies between Sarah Dollar and Jon Rixon, drawing a strong comparison to Laura Marling, Noah and The Whale and Angus and Julia Stone. The duo have managed to infuse modern musical trends and an authentic sound to create one of the most engaging and fulfilling songs of the year so far.

Strong showcases their unique genre-blending sounds and earmarks the band as one of the most exciting new duos of late. Speaking about the new full-length and their choice to make Strong the lead single, the pair said, “ Strong is the second single and is one of the more intimate and emotive of the album tracks. The track has a more singer/songwriter feel to it with acoustic guitar at its core and showcases harmonies throughout.”

Backed up with an acoustic rendition of their track ‘The Lake’ on the b-side, ‘Home/Strong’ is available from via their new label Indie Kitchen Records, the duo recently had a strong 6 date UK tour, with more dates and festivals to come later this year.
