listen to a new song from paperwhite

brooklyn’s paperwhite bill themselves as a dream pop duo, but the emphasis is clearly on the pop; thudding kick drums, punchy synths, and soaring vocals have dominated their standalone tracks thus far.  katie and ben marshall are set to release their debut ep magic on november 17th via duly noted records, and have padded the announcement with a superb new earworm entitled “pieces.”  a simple drum part lays the framework for a song powered by a multitude of intertwining synthesizers and a layered vocal melody that would have felt at home in a john hughes move, had it been released thirty years prior.  dig in below.
