Papercuts, “Life Among The Savages”

Post Author:

It’s been three years since Papercuts released their last album, and by the sound of it, most of that time has been spent tucked away carving out their upcoming album, Life Among The Savages. The band released the title track today, putting on display an ambition so large it could only be matched by the raw emotion Jason Quever spills into this reclusive and melancholy vessel. “Out here among the savages, life is a gas,” Quever croons over dreamy strings arrangements and delicate guitar. In an a exceedingly honest effort, Quever watches from afar as he copes with over a decade of the alienating lifestyle of a struggling songwriter.

Life Among The Savages is out May 6 in the US via Easy Sound Recording Co., and May 12 in the UK via Memphis Industries. The tracklisting and Papercuts' upcoming tour dates are listed below.
