If you like being serenaded in forests, falling in love in dark bedrooms full of fairy-lights, getting lost in the woods and partying with strange creatures this Sydney Epic Indie Folk Band has got a musical score written just for you. With influences ranging from Fleet Foxes, Vincent McMorrow, Sufjan Stevens and many more of the indie world pioneers, Paisley Park has a lot to prove and will be doing so this year between Sydney and Wollongong.
Now signed with Blue Pie Records and featuring on Triple J Unearthed, Paisley Park (Cal Thompson – Vocals, guitar, banjo Ellis Birkby – Drums, vocals Elliot Hitchcock – Bass David Thomas – Electric/acoustic guitar, vocals Taylor Davis – Piano) is working on the release of their EP which is available for download on their Facebook page.
“Banjos, mandolins, double bass and ambient vocals mix with raucous percussion to bring forth something that quite obviously has roots in the folk scene, but transcends the sometimes-frustrating one-dimensionality of bands aiming to emulate Band of Horses, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes by incorporating ambience and progressive song structure.” Tunesdays with Cam: Paisley Park’s ‘Grand Canopy’ EP
“It is the second track; ‘Little Bit,’ which crosses into a more emotional, heartfelt and lovelorn sadness, that is the standout here. Like a fleshed-out version of Bon Iver, still tender but with a more full-bodied sound, the gently picked acoustic guitars and stuttering, booming drumbeats under layered vocals and strained yells speak of lost love and heartache.” Radar Illawarra: Introducing Paisley Park
