Papertwin Cast Synth-Pop Haze on Disarming ‘Alkaline’


Brooklyn’s Papertwin already have two EPs to their name, and soon they’ll have a third. On June 17, the dream-pop trio — composed of Max Decker (vocals, guitar, synth), Francis Cardinale (drums), Nick Shopa, (synth) — will self-release the Vox Humana EP, their first studio effort (last year’s Peru EP, like 2011’s Porcelain, was a homemade project). The upcoming, six-track collection opens with “Alkaline,” a new wavy slice of synth-powered shoegaze. Get lost in it below.
