End Of July is more than about the end of summer. It’s about the end of love, the beginning of heartache, and the pining for what’s been and gone. This melancholy is encapsulated in the most beautiful manner on Canadian band Paper Lions’ new alt pop single. This slow simmering number blooms brilliantly into a florid intoxicating aria, even closing with heartfelt horns through which seep a touch of optimism and plenty of romance. End Of July displays Paper Lions’ soft under belly, an unexpected surprise after they previously gave us exuberant songs bordering on indie dance. End Of July, which was mixed in Brooklyn by Andrew Maury (RAC, Lewis Del Mar, Panama Wedding), is taken from Paper Lions’ forthcoming album, Full Colour, out soon on September 16th.
