If I Explode It's Because I Love You

For a short period recently I struggled to find a good guitar driven indie sounding pop band. That all changed when I heard The Paper Cranes song 'I'll Love You Until My Veins Explode'. Isn't that the most romantic title, admit it! you know it is....don't be scared to fall in love.

Their simple pop melody is wrapped up in poetic lyrics Ezra Pound would be proud of. The Paper Cranes will clutch onto the heartstrings of every intellectual music fan; perhaps Canada's answer to Belle and Sebastian but without the highland wit.

Formed in Victoria, British Columbia in 2005, The Paper Cranes have gained a steady following of fans throughout their homeland. But despite supporting acts such as We Are Scientists, Pretty Girls Make Graves and Wolf Parade the bands appeal has not yet reached a wider niche. With blogs starting to spread the hype, maybe The Paper Cranes wings will unfold.

The band currently have two releases. An EP titled Veins and their recently released debut full length record, Halcyon Days. In true indie fashion the album is only available at shows, but don't fret, if you're in Canada you can buy it in stores soon. One final interesting fact: Ryan McCullagh (vocals) and Miranda Roach (keyboards) are husband and wife.
