The Airplanes – “Paper Hearts”


If you like the thought of cruising down a Californian beach in a dune buggy – wind in hair, sunscreen on skin, surfboard in arms – on a hot summer day in the 1960s, “Paper Hearts” by The Airplanes just may produce the sunny and nostalgic West Coast vibes you’re looking for. ¬†Catchy vocals dance around in the background of the track, as an upsurge of guitars drift in and out, as if they were surfing by. The drums aren’t just moving; they’re running playfully, emphasizing the spirited nature of the song. By blending together catchy background vocals with the twangy guitar sounds of ’60s beach-driven pop, songwriter Joshua Vest modernizes the Beach Boys’ surf-rock vibe, incorporating his personal flare along the way.
