Paper dog - Searching (DC#129)

Keep your eyes and ears open for Paper Dog, a new fresh band with roots in Oslo, Norway. Paper Dog sounds like a wonderful mix of Emilie Nicolas, Chet Baker and James Blake and is inspired by everything from electronic music to acoustic jazz. With their open approach to songwriting and the bands burning passion for music, Paper Dog creates a brilliant introduction to their musical universe with their debut single «Searching» out on Diamond Club May 22nd.

«Searching» is a song that initially started as an idea by songwriter and drummer, Kenneth Enes Kristoffersen, based on a synthesizer patch. «The title describes much of the process of recording the tune as well. After much «searching» and testing we finally found a feel and form we were satisfied with.» Kristoffersen mentions. «The lyrics can on the surface seem to be just another love song. In a way it is, but it depends on how you look at the word «love». At the same time «you» in the song is undefined. This gives the subject many different faces. It can be the past you, a former lover, the memory of a person etc.»
