Sunday Music Spotlight – Paper Moon

Canadian indie-pop band Paper Moon
Despite the fact that they come from a place known for cold and snow, Winnipeg’s Paper Moon produces the kind of warm, sunny pop music that serves as the perfect backdrop to a day on the beach or by the pool. Singer Allison Shevernoha’s bright, clear voice draws comparisons to The Cardigans, The Submarines, and Letters to Cleo, all stalwarts of the genre. Since the sun is shining, the beer is cold, and the water’s warm, let’s skip the chit-chat and get straight to the music.

Bouncy piano, handclaps, and those great vocals make this track an upbeat summer gem.

This is the kind of pop that should be on the radio instead of Lady GaGa. The kind that doesn’t get old after you hear it twice. The kind that doesn’t pander to its audience. The kind that works as either background music, or something to actually listen to intently.
