PEI indie pop rockers, Paper Lions have been quite quiet due to the recording of a upcoming album with producer, Howard Redekop, which is set to be released in fall 2012. However, their post productions have been on fire. One of their earlier efforts, 'Travelling' hit 1 million viewers on Youtube the other day, which is well deserved for a talented band like them. As Butch Walker says, that there's difference between a hit song and a good song. This song is definitely the later as it grows in the listeners after several times of listening, leaving a scar in your brain, engraving a memory of a time. Whenever I listen to this song, I remember the moment when the singer, John MacFee engaging with the audience during the chorus to sing along with his single acoustic guitar. It's one of my favorite moments of a live show.
Since they finished recording at the studio, they are back on the road just in time for this year's NXNE. They will be playing two shows in Toronto: June 15th at El Mocambo and June 29th at Yonge and Dundas Square. The Y&D show is free. What else we can ask for? A good free show with a beautiful weather in the downtown core?
