Debut from Welsh Alt-Pop Duo Paper Aeroplanes Receives US Release on October 26

The debut album from Welsh Alt-pop duo Paper Aeroplanes, "The Day We Ran Into the Sea," will receive its American release October 26 on OK!Good Records.

"The Day We Ran Into the Sea" is a mixture of folk and acoustic elements laced with electric guitars and Celtic undertones (contributed to by producer Jon Reynolds, who's worked with the likes of Sinead O'Connor).  The album also features sonic contributions from Head (PJ Harvey), John Reynolds (Sinead O'Conner, Belinda Carlisle) and Matt Prime (Will Young, Kelly Clarkson, Natalie Imbruglia).  Each song has a commercial pop sensibility topped off with poignant lyrics and Sarah Howells' haunting ‘one of a kind’ voice.

“We're really excited to be signing to OK Good records and giving our debut album the official release we’ve hoped for in the US,” said vocalist Sarah Howells.  “People have always said our music would work really well ‘across the pond’ so I guess now we get to find out! The US fans we've already picked up via the Net will be glad to hear that they get their very own version of the album complete with bonus tracks!”

First single "Cliché" was largely recorded and produced by the band and is a universal story of breaking up and the struggle to move on, with a tongue-in-cheek nod to the fact it's not the first time this sentiment has been expressed. The video for the track shows the group's quirky side, featuring Sarah and her mannequin-boyfriend in a series of scenes.

The four years since Sarah met Richard Llewellyn at a rehearsal room in the tiny Welsh village of Llanfyrnach have been anything but dull. The pair moved from their small home towns in western Wales to the city Cardiff to make a fresh start.  There they began penning songs together and Paper Aeroplanes was born.  In their earliest stages, Paper Aeroplanes had success with the use of their song "When the Lights Go Out" on a worldwide "OC" trailer and a Hallmark channel advertisement.

With some help from the Internet, the band has since grown in popularity across the UK, Europe and beyond, with national airplay from BBC Radio 2 and three singles playlisted at BBC Radio Wales.
