Biography

With their honest and smart songs, Good on Paper sit at the literate indie pop bar with other skewed melodicists like the Silver Jews, the Magnetic Fields, and Modest Mouse.

Like the terse phrases that you mutter to yourself when no one is around, Good on Paper’s words are often as memorable as the hooks that they contain. David Chandler sings his sarcastic pop anthems in an unapologetic baritone, with every carefully chosen word pulling its own weight. Multi-instrumentalist Rebecca McInnes sings in angelic counterpoint to David’s bratty toss-offs, balancing out the duo's stripped down pop sound.

After some recording experiments with a full band, David & Rebecca found that their songs shined the brightest when performed as a duo. With the help of a cheap drum machine, some old synths, and an omnibus of toy instruments, Good on Paper rehearse and record all their songs in a tiny apartment in Silverlake, CA.
