Listeners when first hearing Paper Planes Volume 1, will anticipate an album very reminiscent of Islands, Apples In Stereo, Fun, and a dash of American Analog Set. Mixed with the sound qualities comparable to what an audience would experience front row of a musical, Kicklighter intrigues listeners with his unique sound. With lyrics that are part narrative and full of emotion, his word choice and descriptive imagery sets him apart amongst musicians within this quirky genre. “All the world, a possibility, never got to know you so well, the moment was gone” is just a small snippet of word greatness that this album showcases. Words can’t really describe how masterful and appealing Paper Planes Volume 1 truly is until one listens to the collection and reflects on the wonderment their ears have experienced. Paper Planes Volume 2, I’m ready for your tracks to fill my living room, blasting sound in my headphones walking on my sidewalk stroll to work, and playing in the car while setting out for an adventure.
