This Paper Route will not end up with you scrounging through your azalea bushes to fetch the daily news.
Nashville quartet Paper Route will make a stop at Record Exchange for a free, all ages in-store performance at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 30. Later that night, the indie rockers will open for a sold-out Owl City show at the Knitting Factory.
Bass/piano/programmer Chad Howat formed Paper Route in 2004, inspired by insomnia and Icelandic songbird Bjork. Their debut full-length album Absence combines sonic guitars with harmonious keyboard and All American Rejects style vocals.
The band gained popularity with the inclusion of their music in an episode of cheesy teen soap, “One Tree Hill.” Tours with Paramour, Phantom Planet and Passion Pit heightened their status on the college rock scene.
The Tennessee foursome has been praised by publications including Paste and The Daily Chorus. According to Absolutepunk.net, Paper Route carries listeners to an alternate universe. That may be, but stay grounded so that you can get to Record Exchange on Tuesday.
