about

Paperfriend's second EP is a record that has been a long time coming. Initially announced as far back as August 2015, the band have spent time writing and refining the songs on this EP, and decided on the name Don't Look Back as a motivational thing – the band always try to look forward to the future.

The EP was recorded in three days over a period of four months between January and May 2016 at The Clubhouse Studios in Tunbridge Wells, with Ricky Beetlestone on production duties (previous clients include Moose Blood and Drawstring, to name a couple).

It has been over a year since the release of Paperfriend's debut EP Memories, but this has given the band time to record and deliver a more polished and superior follow up.

Track Name: Embers
The ceiling's caving in again
The pressure's building in the air
The sparks are flying, unaware of what's gone on
Explosions of a verbal kind
The embers flash a speck of light
They die a quick death
But they ignite all the time

It's time to go
It's time to leave
You need to stay away from me

You've done the damage
I'll untangle our wires and start again
Throw out the baggage, put out the fire
(Put out the fire)
You overreacted
I won't lose too much sleep on what you did
Don't try to fool me, you can't hurt me

The fuse has blown, its time to change
This puzzle's wrong, lets rearrange
The wires are tangled up in ways that seem strange
Untie the knot that seals our bond
Unleash the venom that you hold
The fire that burned was really strong
But now it's gone

It's time to go
It's time to leave
You need to stay away from me

You've done the damage
I'll untangle our wires and start again
Throw out the baggage, put out the fire
(Put out the fire)
You overreacted
I won't lose too much sleep on what you did
Don't try to fool me, you can't hurt me

Light it up, light it up
Burn a candle, blow it out
But the embers will remain

Light it up, light it up
Burn a candle, blow it out
But the embers will remain

Light it up, light it up
Light it up, light it up
Light it up, light it up
