The popular Australian indie-folk band The Paper Kites are returning to North America this summer for multiple headlining dates and summer festivals, including Ottawa’s Blue’s Fest and Montreal’s Lion D’or. This is their first return to North America since their debut last fall with some City and Colour support dates. Check out all their North American festival tour dates here!

From their debut album States out now (Nettwerk Records), The Paper Kites delivered an ambitious video concept for their song “Young“. Oh Yeah Wow, an award-winning film and animation company, photographed 400+ different faces, each person was shot multiple times in a variety of facial poses, replicated various mouth shapes in accordance with the lyrics. Using stop-motion animation, the video cycled through the hundreds of people, who when edited together, sang the song. The video was featured by Yahoo! Music, Mashable, Huffington Post, MTV, Wall Street Journal, College Humor, Stereogum and more.
