Paper Fishes – click for latest release: EP1 Turn the Tide.
Paper Fishes are a UK-based indie roots band, formed by vocalist and songwriter Andre Levy as an outlet for his simmering discontent with himself, his friends, his family, 21st Century politics, and consumer-capitalist society. Their ultimate goal is to bring his analogue era disgruntlement and disillusionment kicking and screaming into the digital age.
Paper Fishes are releasing their second album, Fear of Silence, in the summer of 2023 on Irregular Patterns. Before that are 3 EP releases, starting on 10th March 2023 with Turn the Tide.
They released their debut album Instant Happiness in November 2021 on the UK indie label Irregular Patterns. It’s available on expanded, limited edition vinyl from Bandcamp and selected record stores in Bristol.
Their music is also available to stream across the internet via Distrokid. Just click here.
Paper Fishes took their name from a collection of short stories by the American writer and artist Kristin Joyce Stevenson. Other short-listed band names were Boulevardiers, Kill Your Darlings, and Marginalia. Other writers they like include Umberto Eco, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Kurt Vonnegut. They’re that kind of band. But they’re more, or less, than that too. Like the film Mallrats if you watch it backwards.
