From their very first EP, 2011's Woodland, The Paper Kites had found a devoted audience for their sound, and by early 2012 they were headlining shows across Australia. Along with their recent platinum certification in Australia, the band have also received gold and platinum certification in Canada, The Netherlands, Italy, and New Zealand for their single “Bloom.”
The Paper Kites have since opened for the likes of Passenger, City and Colour and Bombay Bicycle Club, and completed a number of local and international headline tours, selling out rooms like the Fonda Theatre (Los Angeles), Paradiso (Amsterdam), and the historic Forum Theatre (Melbourne).
The indie-folk group haven't played in Australia in 2 years, and in that time, The Paper Kites have written and recorded their fifth studio album Roses, which has just been released to the world.
