Biography

“The combination of brisk, dance-club movement with precisely conceived instrumental lines is alluring.”

“Papertwin emerges with its own take on that formidable sound.”

-fingertipmusic.com

Papertwin came together in 2009 after having met each other as students in various schools in Vermont and New York. Before becoming a four-piece, the band was initially conceived by Max Decker (guitarist, vocalist, songwriter) and was quickly joined by high school friend Francis Cardinale (drummer, programmer). Together they recorded demos but the band wasn’t able to take form until third member Nicholas Shopa (synthesizers) came onboard after meeting fellow classmate Francis at an audio engineering school in New York. Having lost their early bass player who moved out of the country in December 2010, Papertwin took a short break from live shows in order to locate a new bassist, as well as write and record a handful of new material. In February 2011 Papertwin welcomed their fourth and final member, Justin Michael Miller (bass, synthesizer), and resumed performing live in Manhattan and Brooklyn.
The sound of Papertwin contains elements of New Wave, Brit Pop, Dream Pop and Shoegaze but cannot be pinned as any one of them alone. The heavy usage of synthesizers informs their sonic foundation while Decker’s translucent, crystalline vocals etch a distinguishing clarity to their sound.
