Earlier this year, they launched their UK Based UK/EU store so as to make the postage of their records cheaper for you. They also promised exclusives and they’re now delivering on those lofty promises!
PAPER + PLASTICK'S FREE "WELCOME TO THE UK" COMPILATION IS NOW AVAILABLE!
They are happy to announce P+P's "Welcome To The UK" comp, which features some of their favourite UK friends and bands!!
The compilation is HUGE and contains first listens from: Ducking Punches, Good Friend, The Run Up and Question The Mark.
Ducking Punches will be no strangers to fans of the UK scene for good reason, they are hardworking and their songwriting is peerless. Their upcoming LP is widely anticipated and P+P are beyond stoked to have the honour (and they mean that in the truest sense of the word) to give you the first glimpse of that record.
Good Friend (who hail from Northern Ireland) are a fantastic up and coming talent already writing songs of a quality way-beyond their years, expect more from them (including an exclusive video release) later in the year.
The Run Up From Bristol are the South-West UK’s Strike Anywhere/Iron Chic Hybrid, most likely playing a town near you in the early part of 2016. The Run Up shall be releasing their EP in the early part of 2016 and the track featured on the compilation ‘Lately’ is your first glimpse of that EP.
Wales’s Question The Mark provide a demo/glimpse of their upcoming record. Historically one of the UK scenes hardest working gruff bands they have taken a backseat of late but keen to get back into the saddle and we cannot wait to see it.
The compilation also features recently released songs from Bear Trade, Mixtape Saints and Deadlines. It is all killer, no filler and completely free.
