The Paiges are another new Pacific Northwest group. Blending a lo-fi pop sound with folk-rock in the vein of Woodsist artists or a much softer side of Slumberland Records, The Paiges’ track “You’ll Never Know” sparks the sort of curiosity I found so intriguing with that Salmon Thrasher demo, “In A Balloon”.
Gritty, raw, punchy guitar riffs are fronted by a front-porch-sleepy summer pop sound buried in too-hot, sweaty days and the lazy carefree demeanor of youth culture. “You’ll Never Know” hits all the right notes, and leads The Paiges to be a band I look forward to hearing more from; hopefully sooner than later.
From the sounds of it, that will happen as Matt (drums) noted to me that the band is recording this month with plans to release something this summer. If that’s the case, be assured that you’ll hear more from this group right here on FensePost in the very near future…
