Press release:

Australian indie-folk outfit The Paper Kites are returning to New Zealand shores.

The Melbourne-based band - behind the smash hit ‘Bloom’ - are bringing their ‘WHERE YOU LIVE’ tour to Blue Smoke in Christchurch on Wednesday, March 27; San Fran in Wellington on Thursday, March 28 and the Tuning Fork in Auckland on Friday, March 29.

The Paper Kites have earned a loyal, organic fan base all across the world.

With monumental streaming numbers, 200 shows across the world in just under three years and recent Gold accreditation in the US with nearly 700,000 copies of their track ‘Bloom’ being sold in the country, The Paper Kites are Australia's quiet achievers.

And their world class songwriting prowess shines on their most recent album ON THE CORNER WHERE YOU LIVE.

ON THE CORNER WHERE YOU LIVE was co-produced with Grammy-winner Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) at his studio in Connecticut - a 120-year old Victorian era home that the band lived and recorded in for 5 weeks.

"It's a collection of stories about these characters all living in an apartment building; I wanted to capture moments, feelings, it's about people and their stories,” says lead vocalist, Sam.
