LA based alternative – pop band Paper Jackets have shared a new video for their latest single “Baby Teeth“. “Baby Teeth is symbolic of change and growth in life,” shares frontman James Mason on the track. “We’re all traveling along a certain path and all have relics from our past. These are little reminders of where we come from and where we’re headed. I find great personal joy sharing and exploring these stories in our music.”
“Faded 80’s pastel windbreakers, glitter makeup and surreal projections on a white backdrop are all mainstays in the latest music video for our single “Baby Teeth” the band shared with Discovered. “It was the last Sunday before the world was put on pause, studios closed and the life we knew took a sharp turn. We’re still feeling a little whiplash but are extremely grateful to have participated in this production and thrilled to be able to share with our fans and friends!”
“Baby Teeth” joins recently released single “What They Call a Life” from the band’s upcoming collection of tracks Souvenirs Volume One, due out July 10th. These 10 tracks are one part of a collection that stretches and pulls at the genre of alternative rock. The album reveals a nostalgic theme throughout; touching on creative moments the band has experienced together to addiction and it’s many forms.
Paper Jackets was formed in 2016 as each musician was rotating through a number of Sunset Strip jam nights. What started as a few random meetings and sessions has since blossomed into a six-piece group consisting of James Mason (vocals), Emily Dickinson (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 2018, Mason & co. grabbed opening slots for Bishop Briggs and the X Ambassadors and they haven’t slowed down since.
For all members of Paper Jackets, the road to creating this record has been long and not without its bumps. However, they’re more than excited for whatever the next steps may be. “There’s a sense of urgency,” says Mason, speaking to the album as a whole. “There’s this mentality of, we have to do this now, we have to make these songs now…There’s this artistic force that pushes me in that way.” Whatever force they are following, they’re sure to take some souvenirs for the road.
