Paper Lions Are About To Be Canada's Hottest New Dance Pop Export

Canada is consistently full of surprises. My favorite band of the twelve years (Arcade Fire) hails from Montreal. Drake has been repping the Toronto hip-hop scene for a decade now. Grimes (Vancouver) is totally changing the way we look at avant-pop in the 2010s. And considering You Forgot It In People is one of my fave records ever, you know we have love at Baeble for the (potentially permanently) on hiatus Broken Social Scene. And now Canada has another new export that you need to know immediately, Paper Lions.

With a little Passion Pit, a little Walk the Moon, and a hell of a lot of energy, Paper Lions are bringing exuberant dance pop straight from the Great White North. The Prince Edward Island natives just dropped their latest music video, "Believer," and it's as solid an introduction as these upcoming pop-rockers could ask for from an American audience who maybe hasn't been exposed to their tunes yet. And if you can watch this video without wanting to be in that crowd dancing to those slinky beats, you're missing out.

Paper Lions are going to have more tunes dropping in the weeks ahead in advance of their new record, Full Colour, which is due out sometime this Spring. And if the tunes keep up this level of quality, they're going to stay on our radar as a young pop act to watch and you can guarantee we'll put them on yours.
