I went to a Paper Aeroplanes gig at Chapter Arts in Cardiff last night. Me. Out. On a Friday night. I was beginning to think that I might be getting too old (well, I am 3,000 years old) to keep up with the youngsters or down with the kids or whatever it is these days but no, it appears that I still have it going on. Yeah baby!
Paper Aeroplanes are the soundtrack to summer for me. They make perfect, poetic pop songs. Lyrics with depth and melodies that soar and sear their way into your soul. I do also have to confess to having a little crush on the lead singer, Sarah. She's lovely and her voice is pure and beautiful and makes me go a little weak in the paws.
If you haven't heard of them, check them out. Cliche was their first single and you can hear more of their music on Paper Aeroplanes' MySpace Page. They are absolutely wonderful and I guarantee that you will hear more and more of them.
