Soaring with much-needed optimism and energy, “What They Call a Life”, the latest single from Paper Jackets is available for fans to stream today. Taking on the idea that “nothing really lasts forever”, it’s a reminder that there are so many opportunities to make life the best version it can be for yourself.
“‘What They Call a Life’ is a triumphant return from any dark memories that you may have,” shares front man James Mason on the feelings behind the new track. “Reflecting on your past while standing alongside your friends can really help hold a guiding light to the future.”
For Mason, creating art is not a choice. Luckily, as the front man of Paper Jackets, he has the chance to add his voice more than ever. “A lot of people are tormented with the human condition,” he says, speaking from his home in Los Angeles, “and they want to have a way to express that. For me, it’s this need to use that voice.”
Paper Jackets deliver a unique, sleek sound that equally takes its cues from the current crop of genre peers like Walk The Moon, Smallpools, CHVRCHES and Cherry Pools, but also legendary acts like The Ronettes and The Beach Boys.
Paper Jackets was formed in 2016, and consists of Mason, Emily Dickenson (keyboard, live backing vocals), Jonny Vesely (guitar), Miles Franco (bass, live backing vocals), David Allen (drums) and Aimee Proal (vocals). After releasing the EP Don’t Lose Your Head in 2019, Mason & co. grabbed opening slots for Jimmy Eat World, Bishop Briggs and the X Ambassadors, and haven’t slowed down since.
With this first single as just a taste of what’s to come in 2020, fans will want to stay tuned to Paper Jackets’ social media accounts and http://www.paperjackets.com/ for more news soon.
