Paper Aeroplanes - Little Letters


The story of Paper Aeroplanes is as heartwarming and poignant as one of their songs. Vocalist Sarah Howells suffered a great personal loss, leading to her meeting guitarist Richard Llewellyn and their subsequent realisation that they were meant to make music together. Now they're ready to reach their widest-ever audience with their much-anticipated third album ‘Little ... Read more in Amazon's Paper Aeroplanes Store

Product Description

Product Description

'Little Letters', is the third album by Paper Aeroplanes, one of the UK's most acclaimed up-and-coming groups. The Welsh duo - Sarah Howells and Richard Llewellyn - have been making serious waves around the UK, touring constantly since getting together in 2009. Last year alone they played over one hundred dates, selling out venues across the UK and performing at a host of prominent music festivals. The long-awaited new album is their first release on the Navigator label. Their emotionally charged music and heartbreaking vocals have already gained Paper Aeroplanes some impressive fans in the media world. "Intimate, jaunty and confident low-key pop with great melody" is how The Guardian describes their music, while radio support has come from 6 Music's Steve Lamacq, Cerys Matthews, Chris Hawkins and Lauren Laverne and Radio 2's Bob Harris. Radio Wales are also big supporters of the duo, helping cement their burgeoning reputation in the principality. Musically, Sarah and Richard are inspired by the likes of Laura Veirs, Bjork, Jeff Buckley, Gillian Welch, Everything but the Girl and Lucinda Williams. 'Little Letters' is a step away from their previous two albums, with more of a full band feel that nevertheless maintains the duo's talent for catchy, atmospheric, folk-tinged songs. Their compositions are picturesque stories, inspired by their rural upbringing and the emotional extremes of past loves and friendships. Aside from the musical talents of Sarah and Richard, 'Little Letters' features a host of top players, such as John Parker on double bass (from Nizlopi who had a UK No.1 with "The JCB Song") and percussionist Martin Ditcham (Everything But The Girl, Talk Talk, Sade). The album was partly produced by Phill Brown (Bob Marley, Bombay Bicycle Club, Talk Talk) at Yellow Fish studio in Lewes, with much of the additional tracking taking place at Richard's flat in Cardiff. Brown's 'old school' influence is there for all to hear - the warmth of the analogue tape and the relaxed, atmospheric rhythm section recordings giving a great backbone to these 11 stunning songs. Paper Aeroplanes' brilliant album provides an intimate yet far reaching soundtrack to the duo's lives; each song a 'little letter' full of meaningful recollections and poignant personal moments. The result is a set of songs that are honest and raw, yet crammed with melodies that resonate in your head long after the record's finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paper Aeroplanes - A hidden gem 27 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download
Little letters is the brilliant new album from Welsh duo Sarah Howells and Richard Llewellyn. Paper Aeroplanes have been described as one of the best up and coming UK bands in 2013 and it's not too hard to understand why. From the instantly catchy and uptempo "Red Rover", When the Windows Shook" and "Palm of your hand" and the title track "Little Letters" through to the the heartfelt ballands of "Multiple Love", "At the Altar" and the beautiful "Silence the bells", "Sleeper Train" and "Fable", it has something for everyone. The feel of the album will remind you of the The Sundays, Cranberries, Corrs, KT Tunstall, Amy McDonald, Florence and the Machine and Fleetwood Mac, but Paper Aeroplanes have a unique sound. With excellent heartfelt song writing from both Richard and Sarah and vocals to die for, this is an album that you will love more on every play.

Paper Aeroplanes have a fantastic back catalogue, so please check out "The day we ran into the sea" and the "We are ghosts" albums as well. The "Time to be" EP (currently a steal at 2) is also worth buying. Most of their music is on the Paper Aeroplanes website. If you want to hear the full version of the songs first, rather than a short clip on Amazon (which often doesn't do the song justice) head there first. The website also has some videos of their live performances. On the videos you may recognise one of my favourite double bass players, John Parker (one half of Nizlopi), who also played on the album.

They are also amazing live, please go and see them as I did, if they gig near you.
Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catchy heartfelt music for your soul 13 May 2013
Format:Audio CD
Paper Aeroplanes latest release, Little Letters, is their most accomplished and rounded album to date. Sarahs voice lends itself beautifully to the songs she and Richard write together, that say so many of the things we feel in a way that most can't express. If you like folk music, don't hesitate to buy this. All the years of touring and releasing their music has culminated in a brilliant and polished album.

Do yourself a favour and find a quiet room, and listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be the 'breaker'! 13 May 2013
By Splatt
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The latest album from Paper Aeroplanes and this should be the one that thrusts them into the limelight! The same beautiful vocals as previously with wonderful lyrics but now with a 'proper band' backing them up. It sounds great. Buy it, you will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars another excellent album 13 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download
Bought the CD whilst at their gig. They were brilliant live, and all of their CD's are special too. The songs are memorable and the singing clear and lovely. This album is slightly "louder" in places than previous ones but this is good I think. Sarah Howells also sings with Al Lewis on his Cd's, (he was at the gig too) and if you like this then you may like his music too.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best album I've heard in a long time 7 Aug 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
For me this is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time which catches a particular time in your life as its one that you play, and you play and you play and you never seem to get tired of it. This will always remind me of the hot summer days of 2013. This is definately their best album to date for me there is at least 4 excellent tracks and the rest are really good which is very rare as normaly you have one tune on an album that you really like and then the rest just make up space and are just mediocre.
This album is alot punchier than "The day we ran into the sea" although I ,liked a couple of tunes on that album the quality production music lyrics are just better on "little letters. What makes this better than the other albums is that you connect with the lyrics/ music than on previous albums. We just enjoy Sarah Howell's haunting/melancholy vocals and oviously Richard Llewellyn can play which is a rare thing these days so the music is well written played and sung. Its well produced and its my find of the year
So if you like good easy listening music you cant get any better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great 18 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this band. Having seen them live in Oxford a few months ago I immediately bought this and their other two albums, The Day We Ran Into The Sea, and We Are Ghosts. There are many good young bands and artists around these days, and this band is my favourite amongst them. Great tunes, lovely harmonies and thoughtful lyrics, when at a loose end Paper Aeroplanes is who I switch on.
