Lyrics:

This heavy feeling goin’ round
Got people hiding underground
I sit in silence with your ghost
I am afraid of you the most

When you move just like a hurricane
I search for shelter from the rain
When you move just like a hurricane
I can’t get near you, babe

These petty feelings got a way
And come slipping from you, I should say
You shake the bookcase from the wall
I’m not afraid of you at all

Cause you move just like a hurricane
I search for shelter from the rain
When you move just like a hurricane…

Paper Aeroplanes Do Guest Column For Q Magazine

Paper Aeroplanes recently did a guest column for music magazine, Q Magazine. For Paper Aeroplanes’ article they spoke about songs that inspired their music, why it is sometimes important to have a message in music, and devoted fans. You can check out the full post here.

Here is a quote from their article:

From football songs to chants at political rallies, melody gives a catchy element to words that make them easy to remember and, perhaps more importantly, harder to forget. But it’s the emotional response to certain melodies that I believe adds that extra “shade of meaning”.

Music gathers people together. Supporting a band from the early days of tiny club gigs through to a major breakthrough can be a cause in itself for many devoted fans. From an artist’s point of view I can tell you that when a gig goes well it can feel like a huge family gathering. When better to try to get an important message across than in a venue filled with people who have come to see you perform your music and deliver your message, whether it’s one of heartbreak or politics.

Paper Aeroplanes’ album, The Day We Ran Into The Sea can be purchased/streamed on our website. Click on the artwork below.

LSMedia Crown Paper Aeroplanes “Sound Of The Week”

Liverpool’s local student newspaper, LSMedia just made Paper Aeroplanes their “Sound of the Week.” If you recall, LSMedia also did a really nice interview with the band last week, so it’s nice to see the band now being their choice pick for this week as well. LSMedia was also quick to point this out by saying:


“Guardian writer Robin Denselow who notably said ‘with music this good, Paper Aeroplanes deserve a far wider audience’. The nail has been well and truly hit on the head with this statement. Far more people should know about this Welsh twosome, if not only for their ethereal folk melodies but for their heart warming, fairy light lit gigs and their sockless bass player (when playing live he chooses to wear no socks – each to their own).”

Paper Aeroplanes are currently on their headlining tour in Europe, and about to release a new EP entitled Time to Be. Stick around for more news on the band as they seem to have a lot in store for the future. In the meantime read the rest of LSMedia’s article on the band here.
