In November 2014 Paper Aeroplanes crossed an item off their bucket list when they sold out the Union Chapel in London.
The Welsh duo have spent much of the last year writing and recording in Cardiff with the help of producer Mason Neely (Cerys Matthews, Sufjan Stevens, Lambchop, Colorama). Guessing Game, the first single from the new batch of songs, added more rhythmic and electronic elements to the band's trademark acoustic sound, bringing to mind the likes of Lykke Li, Florence and Feist. JOY which will be released in April continues this theme.
