about

Press & mentions:

"By turns catchy, intimate and beguiling.....like a C86 version of The Faces...a bedsit Bowie..."
Shindig! 2018

"This is easy listening made hard....Papernut Cambridge continue to sound like nothing else around. The arrangements are generous and beautifully played, with nice details to discover....Classy stuff that you absolutely must hear."
Popgruppen 2018

"Papernut Cambridge weave their icons and cerebral pinings into articulate hazy pop...like a mongrel-breed of the Alex Harvey Band, Wings and Marmalade....Highway 61 Revisited Dylan fronts The Soup Dragons...A most magnificent return from a most maverick of outfits."
Monolith Cocktail 2018

".....Little vignettes evoking a time past, but never dwelling......Cementing their place as treasures of the British psych scene, Papernut Cambridge hit a home run with this excellent album."
Echoes & Dust 2018

"It reminds me of a blend of The Doomed Bird Of Providence, King Missile, Virginia Wing, Ivor Cutler, The Faces, Pavement and Simon & Garfunkel.....a great album."
Het Schaduwkabinet (Holland) 2018

"‘Outstairs Instairs’ blends the sounds of 1970s pop with the moods and motivations of the 1960s......other worldly yet hummable, psychedelia without the psychedelic drugs, glam rock without the fear of being beaten up....there is no sense that he is sending up pop music or turning it into a cryptic joke. This is an affectionate re-imagination of the sounds of the 1970s."
Pennyblack Music 2018

Pretty much every song's got a melody that sticks.......Papernut Cambridge's hard to pin down (not that it has to be), but one might think of it as some modern-day amalgam of T. Rex, Roxy Music, and The Kinks (with maybe a smattering of Pulp and Beatles mixed in) though even that only begins to hint at it.
