The story of Paper Aeroplanes is as heartwarming and poignant as one of their songs. Vocalist Sarah Howells suffered a great personal loss, leading to her meeting guitarist Richard Llewellyn and their subsequent realisation that they were meant to make music together.
Three albums later (the latest, Little Letters, is out now) and the likes of Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Chris Hawkins, Lauren Laverne and Bob Harris are big supporters.
The reviews say it all:
"With songs this good, Paper Aeroplanes deserve a far wider audience." Guardian
" … mini-album of impressively fine melodies, gentle melancholia and the occasional burst of jaunty, breezy pop" Robin Denselow, BBC Music
"a delicate mix of upbeat nostalgia and heart wrenching honesty." For Folks Sake
"Every so often something comes along that challenges you to do it justice on paper....breathtaking.." God is in the TV
“Little Letters is another exemplary addition to (Paper Aeroplanes’) catalogue, a truly beautiful album of perfect pop vignettes – affirmation if it is needed of the mounting acclaim that surrounds them. ……a band on the edge of greatness” Album of the month – Folk Radio
