Papercuts is a melodic indie band from San Francisco. The singer Jason Quever writes all the songs and records and produces everything, so it's very close to a solo act. The band backs him up with tom-driven drums, organ, zither and bass to create a reverb drenched style reminiscent of The Velvet Underground. The comparison halts though whenever Jason's clean, howling, sometimes folk style vocals lift the songs into space and ignite stars in the sky of my lonely mind.
