Paper Moon are from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Broken Hearts Break Faster Every Day is the group’s second record.
Filled with gorgeous, expansive melodies, Broken Hearts... builds layers of instrumentation and expertly delivered vocals into an elegant pop record. Standout tracks include “Turning Colours Into Greys,” “Last Goodbye,” “These New Friends of Yours...” and “String of Blinking Lights” (co-written with New York producer/Ivy member Andy Chase). Formed in 2000, Paper Moon released their debut One Thousand Reasons to Stay...One Reason to Leave on Endearing Records (Canada) and Quince Records (Japan) in 2002. The record hit #5 on the Canadian Campus Top 50 and collected accolades across the country. Described as “a perfect dose of perfect pop,” (London Scene), the songs on One Thousand Reasons to Stay... were “short, sweet, and catchy as hell” (Exclaim Magazine) while live the band “could give lessons on what a
pop song is” (Chart).
The band toured extensively across Canada and played a number of packed festival shows including the 2002 Halifax Pop Explosion, CMW 2003, NMW 2003, NXNE 2003, Pop Montreal, NMW 2004 and WCMW 2004. Their appearance at NMW led to a publishing deal with Nettwerk Songs Publishing and an appearance on the Nettwerk America/EMI compilation For the Kids Too alongside artists like Nada Surf, Ron Sexsmith and They Might Be Giants. Nettwerk also arranged collaborations for the group with members of Ivy, Nada Surf and the Hermit in 2004 and 2005. Paper Moon has had their music featured in over 20 films and television shows including Queer As Folk, Radio Free Roscoe, Falcon Beach, Party of Five, Cake and others. They have also appeared on a number of compilations from around the world and been featured in a nationally broadcast recording session for CBC Radio 2.
