The Paper Kites

Australian folk-rock group the Paper Kites initially formed around the duo of Sam Bentley and Christina Lacy, who had been performing and writing together since high school. Members David Powys (guitar/banjo), Sam Rasmussen (bass/synth), and Josh Bentley (drums) were recruited from other Melbourne-based bands in 2010 to complete the lineup that was responsible for their debut single "Bloom." With their warm, harmonic blend and acoustic-oriented indie folk-pop sound, their first EP, 2011's Woodland, began to pick up steam and by early 2012, the Paper Kites were headlining across Australia and had landed a couple of key television song placements. By the summer of 2012, they had more than enough material for a full-length album yet decided to continue developing their sound live, and issued a second EP instead called Young North. Their debut LP, States, finally arrived in late 2013 and they made their first trip to North America, first supporting Canadian group City & Colour, then embarking on their own headlining tour. Seeking a different direction for their sophomore album, the Paper Kites headed back to the U.S. to work with Seattle-based producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Manchester Orchestra) who helped them develop a more lush, synth-based sound. Released in late 2015, Twelvefour was a sort of concept album that was composed entirely between the hours of midnight and 4 A.M. ~ Timothy Monger

Portrait 19 repeats a piano chord throughout most of the song. I've been on the song for some time. It's brilliant. It's a love song. It makes me feel stuff.

This is a message people should send out to every artist page of any variety. Stop with the chain messaging please. It is getting very old and I for one am getting pissed the f**k off by it. It is for commenting for the artist and their music careers. So please just stop. Thank you!

Have you ever encountered a song that makes you really nostalgic even though it has nothing to with your childhood? Because that's what Bloom is like for me.

Okay you don't like Justin bieber well there are artists I don't like but COMPLAINING WILL NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT HE'S STILL TALENTED, GOODLOOKING, LOVED, and APPRECIATE. and obvious boyfriend isn't about rape so sit down with your preverted minded behind!
