About the band
As an Alternative band from Atlanta, GA, Paper Lights have honed a large and cinematic soundscape within their music. Over the last two years they have toured internationally, opening for acts such as Allen Stone, The Fray and Miike Snow. In 2018, the band was awarded IMEA's Alternative Album of the Year as well as Song of the Year and nomination for Artist of the Year. Their music has also been featured in placements including CBS, Coca-Cola, Land Rover, Boeing, MTV, ESPN, Chick-fil-a and Outdoor Magazine.
Last year, the band traveled over 10,000 miles, visiting 24 states and 13 National Parks, while sampling sounds from nature and writing their latest full length album, Everything is Sound, which released on March 30, 2018.
"Paper Lights is probably one of the best indie bands of this decade."

"Atmospherically electrifying from start to finish, Paper Lights has crafted a sound that is synonymous with nature." - Way Too Indie
National Parks Project
Last year, when the time came to start writing and recording our next album, we decided we wanted to do things a little differently. So, instead of writing and recording in a studio, we embarked on our biggest adventure to date by traveling 10,865 miles through 24 states and 13 national parks to create these songs.
We outfitted a red sprinter van, lovingly referred to as Rudolph, and partnered with brands like Roost Tents, Discobeds, Engel Coolers, & more and set out on this multiple month project.
We gathered sound samples from nature and every place we visited to include on the album. Nearly all the percussion and ambient sounds are from boulders, hiking footsteps, fallen redwood trees and tones pulled out of canyon winds. We recorded everything in resonant 432Hz and named it Everything Is Sound.
The album can only be purchased in it's entirety HERE.
