Sound began life as Dan Gelder's new music project in July 2006. It
was created as a way to get back to the music he grew up with, namely
My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, New Order and the Jesus and Mary
Chain. The project stayed firmly in the bedroom until a friend
suggested he put the few songs he had written onto myspace.
of that year Ker, a Canadian songwriter, wrote a blog on her myspace
saying she was moving to Leeds in the United Kingdom and was looking
for musicians to collaborate. As dan was also living in Leeds, it
seemed too good an opportunity to turn down.
New songs were
recorded over the Autumn and Winter of 2006 and the beginning of 2007
saw The Papertiger Sound play live for the first time, at the Norwich
Arts Centre in the United Kingdom. In March, a trip to Stockholm in
Sweden saw new songs written, and a plan to continue the band once
Kerstin returned home.
returned to Canada in July 2007, leaving The Papertiger Sound
existing as a transatlantic digital online band.
extremely pleased to be working with this talented and accomplished act.
