Brooklyn’s brother-sister synthpop duo Paperwhite haven’t released any new music in over a year, and their new track “Get Away” is a welcome return. They’ve been doing just that for the past year, spending their hibernation period writing, creating and generally “going deeper into the Paperwhite world” according to Ben Marshall. Expanding on what that means, he explains: “We’ve been talking a lot about this idea of ‘future tribal’ as an aesthetic. Primal drums, pop songwriting, and instruments from a parallel electronic universe. The music we’ve been working on feels like a step in that direction and we’re so excited to hear what people think.” Listen below.
After offering up several singles this past year, Brooklyn outfit Paperwhite have finally released their debut EP Magic as of yesterday via Duly Noted Records. The album unveils a couple of new songs, including new track “Gold” below. It’s another shining example of the 80s-inspired synthpop sound the sibling duo Katie and Ben Marshall have been cultivating over the last year. Stream below, along with other standout track from the EP, “Take Me Back.” Looks like a promising future for this brother-sister duo.
