Paper Route to release debut LP

Alt-rockers Paper Route are getting set to release their full-length debut album, Absence, on April 28th. The band released a solid EP last year that caught the attention of Paste magazine, who labeled the quartet one of "4 to Watch." The group's sound is big and expressive, with waves of guitars, keys, and electronics surrounding singer JT Daly's vocals and open, emotional lyrics.

"We’re very sentimental, emotional, hopelessly romantic guys,” says Daly, "and that’s not cool. But we’ve found that when you are just brutally honest, people connect with that. A lot of things that people are running away from, we’ve always found ourselves gravitating towards.”

You can download their new recod's first single, "Carousel," below, which should give you a good taste of the band's signature style.
