We are streaming 'Awkward' in full, the new limited edition hi-fi lathe cut 7" by Jackson, Michigan's Paper Lanterns, out today on Smog Moon Recordings (Bandcamp). These are 2 of the band's best tracks to date that come at you with catchy, upbeat melodic punk that dials in a sound that instantly recalls some of the greats such as Lagwagon, Millencolin and Screeching Weasel.
Paper Lanterns is pure energy. Combining a perfect mixture of 90s punk, rock and roll riffs, and harmonies, they fit right in with all your favorite skate punk acts you probably remember from playing endless hours of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater as a kid. Since solidifying their current lineup at the tail end of 2017, Paper Lanterns has been a driving force in the Michigan music scene. Paper Lanterns is Colton Choate (guitar/vocals), Rocky Hutchins (drums/ vocals), and Dylan May (bass/ vocals).
