THE PAPER KITES

The Paper Kites have released their new album ‘At The Roadhouse’ today via Nettwerk Music Group, a sixteen-song collection that serves as a gripping ode to what waits for us on the winding paths of love, loss, acceptance and wanderlust.

Recorded among the red dirt and bushfire moons of Campbells Creek – a remote village outside their native Melbourne – the journey to ‘At The Roadhouse began with the five-piece working together to build the music venue of their dreams. Converting an old gold-mining supply shop into “The Roadhouse,” The Paper Kites began to craft the album during an unannounced and unadvertised residency; building on the DIY spirit that’s helped them continuously win over new fans one at a time – with remarkable results like a Platinum record in the US and over one billion Spotify streams to date.

There were no expectations or pressure around the performances – just us and a small room full of people,” explains songwriter Sam Bentley of their residency at The Roadhouse. “The whole point was to try and connect with people and in turn develop a sense of community around the music – I think that’s what happened.”

The band have previously released enthralling footage of their ‘At The Roadhouse‘ live shows with performance videos for each of the album’s advance tracks, including “The Sweet Sound Of You,” “Till The Flame Turns Blue,” “Hurts So Good,” “Black & Thunder,” “I Don’t Want To Go That Way” and “June’s Stolen Car.” As No Depression noted in a recent album review, “anyone who steps into The Roadhouse — in person or via listening to the recording — can carry with them a light against the darkness.”
