Review – The Paperweight Array – Greek Theatre Show – by James R Turner

Proponents of Rushdenbeat, and psychedelic power trio, The Paperweight Array have been building a name for themselves over the course of the past 18 months, and this is their third EP release following up the highly acclaimed ‘Transmissions from a Distant Star’ and ‘Kaleidoscope of Antiquities’.

Opening with the powerful Mountain, the band’s trademark vocals and guitar work are in evidence as they blend psychedelic rock with some driving riffs and some brilliant soloing from Aaron, while Dunc and Just on drums and bass and keyboards really drive the song forward.

Their confidence is coming on in leaps and bounds, and you can tell that as a band they are really pushing themselves and building on their early EP’s.

The title track has some fantastic lyrics, and some more of their superb guitar work, with a brilliant summer of love vibe running through the whole track and some great sitar sounding soloing going on.

Final track Reflections (on a Western Trail) rounds off an excellent EP of new material with real style and a great psych out vibe, and a great way to finish this collection.

The Paperweight Array are a fantastic band, and one who go from strength to strength on each EP. I can’t wait to hear a full-length album from them.

Released 9th June 2018
