Band of the Week – Paper Tongues

December 9, 2012

This week’s band is based in my hometown of Charlotte, NC. They have a decent following around here and some around the Southeast, but have had little national exposure. The Paper Tongues is a 5-man group that mixes hip-hop, R&B, and rap influences with rock melodies for a unique sound. My first exposure to the group came from their single “Get Higher” played on a local rock alternative station.

I have since had the chance to see the group live, and have to say that they put on an awesome show. This fits with the group’s belief that the live show is one of the most important pieces of their identity. The group got its start from a series of improv performances at the corner of Trade and Tryon, the center of Charlotte’s Uptown, its center cultural district.

The group currently has one self-titled album, but according to their site they are working on another, due out soon. They recently released an EP entitled Crowd Surfing, which could take the place of the promised album. They currently have no tour dates listed, which means they could be finishing up their album. Either way, definitely check out the original album and keep an eye out to see if you can catch this group on tour!
