Paper Cranes have garnered their reputation over years of hard work and dedication, steadily gaining interest around Cumbria’s music scene and beyond.

The airy, vivid and grounded music derives from the backbone duo with their debut EP ‘Black Mist’. Recent light has propelled the band into their apex, as the expansion of new members add new layers of electric guitar and a technical rhythm section as well as enveloping the ethereal music with three-part harmonies.

Their most recent endeavours have brought to the table a new single ‘Lights’, accompanied by a music video, injecting new life and energy into the band as they throw themselves into their busiest year yet to comprise of their debut album as well as a stint of shows across Europe.

Highlights over their career this far include playing alongside bands such as Ocean Colour Scene, Nizlopi and Little Comets; played renowned festivals like Kendal Calling, Beathearder, Edinburgh Fringe, Solfest as well as features on the likes of BBC Introducing and Lakeland Radio.
