Birmingham’s Paper Buoys bring a pulsating motivational banger in the form of new single ‘Time Won’t Wait’. The band showcase mature and well-balanced songwriting along with seriously quality lyrics in a way that really makes you situp and take notice.
‘Time Won’t Wait’ kicks straight into the action with its killer riff that lights up the track all the way through, with the pounding bass and drums providing the sturdiest of foundations for a solid and dependable song.
The track has a clear message: you can’t let all the shit that life throws at you stop you from succeeding. Something we can all get behind I think, and Paper Buoys make that point in an intelligent, compelling and catchy manner.
There is a dynamic mix of pacing and mood in the song as well for an extra boost of variety; the stomping and brooding verses are equalised by a more melodic chorus, supplemented by some sweet jangly guitar that contrasts nicely to the heavier main riff.
The West Midlands has emerged as an unlikely and exciting hotbed for new talent, and Paper Buoys are certainly at the forefront of that charge. Their songwriting style oozes with talent and wisdom, and there’s no doubt that we’ll continue to hear more enthralling tunes from them in the future.
