CD REVIEW: Paperhill

Paperhill - Given (independent)

It’s always a good sign when listening to an album for the first time, to find yourself singing along straight away. This is what I found while listening to the debut solo EP, Given by Blue Mountains band Paperhill. Not that the album was predictable, but it felt comfortable immediately. From the laid back first track, Suffer through to the epic, heavy rock sounds of the last No One Home, this album moves effortlessly through, bringing you on an emotional journey. Intelligent and mature lyrics coupled with good, honest music, I loved the chilled out vibes throughout.

With the changing weather we’ve had lately, I find that every time the sun comes out, so does this album. I’d love to hear these guys doing a Sunday session in a beer garden. It has that kind of feel to it. The stand out track for me was Something About Her. The changing mood of the song against the fast paced tempo was really appealing to the air drummer in me. All in all a highly enjoyable album that you will want to see played live while enjoying a sneaky Sunday Session. Review By Lockie D
