Roo Panes’ sophomore full-length effort Paperweights, out March 4 on CRC Music, is an album of lush arrangements, blissfully hypnotic vocals and emotionally rich subject matter. Fans have been treated to “The Original”, “Water Over Fire” and album single “Where I Want To Go”. Today the wait is finally over; Paperweights is available for purchase and to stream in full at Spotify.
Paperweights has received accolades ranging from Interview Magazine to Relixin the US + support from BBC 6Music (Lauren Laverne) and BBC Radio 1 (Annie Mac and Phil Taggart) in the UK. Having racked up in excess of 35 million plays on Spotify and more than a million YouTube views, Panes latest effort Paperweights is a fresh, matured collection of songs produced byRupert Coulson (Portishead, Oasis, Robbie Williams). Panes is a succinct, honest craftsman who writes from a place of deep personal expression that resonates with universal truths and desires. His deep voice and timeless storytelling cloak his art in a classic sense that seems wise beyond his years.
