The Paper Kites

Paper kites

The Paper Kites is an alternative folk band consisting of 5 members: Sam Bentley, Christina Lacy , Sam Rasmussen, Josh Bentley and Dave Powys. The band was formed in 2010 after that Sam Bentley and Christina already had some local success as a duo. Two years later they published their first EP called Young North, their first full-length album came in 2013. One album has been planned for August 2018 while “On the train ride home” album was already released earlier this year. With 2 EPs and 3 albums they have a total of 41 songs ready for you to enjoy. Try listening to some here.

Originally they released indie folk music but in the meanwhile they have evolved towards something more alternative. Their style is very particular and hard to describe. When listening to their newest album, it isn’t always very easy to put a genre on their songs. When someone asked what their music style was, Sam Bentley answered: “We are whatever we released on the last record”. For the moment no tour is planned but that may change after the release of their next album.
