Paper Souls share their awesome debut album ‘The Great and The Grieving’.
‘The Great and The Grieving’ is the album you have been waiting for! Made up of almost four years of material, the Tasmanian rockers Paper Souls have reimagined old songs and mixed them in with fresh new material to bring you their debut album. As the band’s sound has evolved into a dark, emotive and sometimes heavier alt rock sound over the last two years, Paper Souls strive to incorporate shards of light into their new record, infusing it with the feeling of hope. Frontman Luke says that whilst he writes a lot about his personal observations and experiences, “the band’s collaboration keeps the listener always discovering something new and dynamic for the ear to digest.” The lead single ‘All the While’ has already been released along with an independently produced video depicting the story of grief for a parent, and the sensation of navigating that grief.
Tasmanian quintet Paper Souls have discovered the ability to legitimately pull together the essentials of music. A long way from their early days as an acoustic duo, the five piece band are formed of husband and wife Sarah (vocals and percussion) and Luke (guitar and vocals), and are joined by Josef Bound (drums), Tom Harvey (bass) and Angus Austin (keys). The band has developed a dynamic sound full of light and shade with Fleetwood Mac like harmonies and the dirty grunge power of Pearl Jam. It’s soaked in delicious and grungy 90’s influence. Over the years, the band have featured at most of Tasmania’s biggest festivals, including Party in The Paddock, The Falls Festival (Marion Bay), Festivale and The Taste Of Tasmania and also supported ARIA Award Winners Killing Heidi and COG on their recent Tasmanian tours. Following on from the success of two EP releases and various singles, ‘The Great and The Grieving’ will be their debut full length studio album.
