The Paper Kites

Melbourne’s much loved folk five-piece The Paper Kites have turned their viral music videos into a lifelong career, reaching #17 on the ARIA Chart for their debut album States, and selling out numerous national tours.

Melbourne’s much loved folk five-piece, The Paper Kites enjoyed a whirlwind year after the release of their highly anticipated debut album States in 2013.

Following on from a successful national tour, the band embarked on a sold out headline tour of the USA and Canada as well as an illustrious support slot alongside Canadian singer- songwriter, City and Colour.

Reigning in at #17 on the ARIA Charts, debut album States received a number of impressive accolades for sophomore single, Young, including a J Award nomination for Australian Music Video of The Year as well as ranking 27th in Rage’s Top 50 Music Videos of 2013.

Off the back of a #8 album and #1 Australian album chart debut for critically acclaimed sophomore LP twelvefour, 2015 has proven to be just as busy, with The Paper Kites completing a national tour followed by a headline tour of the US/CAN.

Written between the hours of midnight and 4am, twelvefour is the band’s most experimental record to date.

With a strong reputation for creating innovative and mesmerising video clips, the band are releasing a trilogy of videos for the first three singles off the album, all of which are also set between 12 and 4am.
