This Glaswegian five-piece play the sorts of tunes that'll find you in your bedroom with the repeat button on. These two tracks are spine-tingling examples of music so beautifully delicate, you half expect it to shatter with every cymbal crash. 'Lost at Sea' centres around constantly shifting drums patterns and the sorrowful longing in frontman Del's voice. ' Lifeboats' is a gently bouncy affair complemented by the flute and melodica that help make this young band sound so special. Music to fall in love with.

Paper Mountain started off life as a five-piece in Glasgow during 2008. Natalia Franklin-Pierce and Adam Campbell added flute and melodica over the core sound of vocals, guitars and drums provided by Derek Reid, Scott Forsyth and Rob Smith.

In 2009 other comitments saw Adam and Natalia leave the band and it left Paper Mountain to focus on a slightly different sound, giving them a rockier edge whilst retaining a strong melodic base.

Still a young band, Paper Mountain have been constantly evolving since their inception, drawing influences from bands such as Grizzly Bear, Mew, Death Cab for Cutie, Islands, Low and Volcano!

Summer 2010 will see the release of their third single. Having been a three-piece for a year, this single sees the band’s song writing in a much stronger position, with each member fully contributing to the process.
