Pre-orders for 'Voices' available now!
'Voices' is due for release on January 18th.
Here's 'Heartbeat' from the album as a special teaser. Our tour starts on January 18 in Auckland
Soulful and dreamy, ‘Heartbeat’ is about the sort of time-stopping romance that keeps you believing in the core goodness of life; a love that helps centre perspective on what matters most.
With lush piano and a very present vocal, the song’s beautifully intertwined harmonies from Fraser and Naomi Browne are complemented by a classically simple arrangement of acoustic guitar, synth, bass and drums. Heartbeat’s intimate lyrics are left to stand out in this arrangement.
The song was performed by Paper Cranes, with Nic Manders playing acoustic guitar, bass and Juno, and Adam Tobeck on drums. ‘Heartbeat’ was written by Paper Cranes, produced by Nic Manders and mastered by Brian Lucey from Magic Garden Mastering.

While Voices draws on our past sound, the new album explores some altogether different territory than The Road Home.
Voices delves into themes of togetherness and relationships, the echoes that pull us together and send us apart. In its darkness and lightness, the album is about doubt and freedom, the changing seasons, the decisions that lead us, the lies we’re told and the search for truth.
We are going on our first large-scale tour since we released our debut album 'The Road Home'. We will be taking a full band for all dates, except the South Island.
Tickets for the Voices Album Tour are now available from Undertheradar (except Wellington (Just The Ticket) and Palmerston North (Globe Theatre)).
We're happy to announce Auckland band Fables will be supporting all North Island shows (except Festival One). West Auckland Folk Band Fables produce a gentle and heartfelt indie-folk sound which could warm even the coldest of hearts.
