20-12-2012 // interviews, 2012: 2012: Interview with Paper Aeroplanes

The year 2012 is coming to an end. It is that time of the year for Christmas carols, buying presents for our loved ones and reflecting on the year that (almost) lies behind us. For us music bloggers it also means writing year lists, pretending our opinions matter to the world. Which of course, they do not, but even bloggers have dreams. These last few weeks I’ve asked several of my favorite artists of 2012 to look back on what this year has brought them. For their own musical careers, but also about the music they’ve enjoyed themselves and, if any, what their plans for 2013 are. These are their stories (yes, I did just quote the A-Team intro).

In my humble opinion the most beautiful song of 2012 is "Multiple Love" by Paper Aeroplanes. It is probably the most played song on my laptop, phone and mp3-player. I've listened entire days to just this one song. Over and over again. The great thing about this duo is that every song they release is pure beauty. Previous releases and the latest EP Time To Be (just released last month, get it while it's hot) are full of tender songs, made with love. Perfect for midnight dreaming by candlelight or walking in the snowy winter. Also a fine recipe for heartache, I can assure you.
Paper Aeroplanes are touring right now, so the shortest interview in the series comes from them. They are forgiven, if they at least visit the Netherlands once next year..

1. If you had to name one moment, what would you consider the highlight of 2012?

2. What are you doing at the moment (November 2012)?
Touring, touring, touring and releasing our Time to Be EP.

3. Which great band/artist did you discover yourself in 2012?
Fell in love with Sharon Van Etten and Rae Morris.

4. What's your favourite album released this year?
It has to be Anais Mitchell's new album.

5. How will you celebrate New Year's Eve?
Felt like having a quiet one this year. Staying in a hotel with my other half. I love to see in the new year by remembering all the best things that happened to me that year and dreaming up resolutions and exciting goals for the next year.

6. What are your plans for 2013?
Releasing our next full length album on a great indie record label.

Thank you Paper Aeroplanes for the interview and hopefully see you in the flesh next year!

And with Christmas coming, give their version of "In The Bleak Midwinter" a spin!
