With a mixture of hip hop beats, funk, soul and rock, in an own format Paper Tongues has released one of 2010's most charming records. Because this band and really swings and could well have a breakthrough like Maroon 5. And it would be really wrong not to say that they do deserve it because they have really got it together with good song material and a unique style that still feels natural. One cannot really require much more of the band musically and that it obviously requires the right promotion and a lot of coincidences. But the band really got it as I said, and songs like the groovy "Ride To California" and "Trinity" should take them far. But the band also has a more straightforward style that mixes up the more urban sound in a very neat way without feeling shattering. So this disc is an obvious choice if you like more soul inspired pop ala Maroon 5, The Last Goodnight and also the underestimated Spymob.
