Alternative pop five-some Paper Aeroplanes from Wales dropped into The Greystones in Sheffield as part of their UK tour promoting their new album Joy.

Playing to a packed backroom, the band started out with Time and Good Love before the working onto Emily, Race You Home and Goldrush before the stunning Red River.

With the excellent vocals of front lady Sarah Howells, backed by Richard Llewellyn, the band were on to a winner from the start.

With a style often compared to bands like Fleetwood Mac, it was a great way to spend an evening.

The sound was backed by a good solid rhythm from the bass and drums which had a mix or more rockier tracks, as well as some slowed down acoustic sounds. But the mix of styles worked well.

Next, we were treated to tracks such as Safe Hands, Only A Lifetime and First Love as the set weaved its way around topics such as Fearne Cotton’s sock line.

Then we had Ribbons, Days and the title track Joy to mention a few.

If you’ve not had a listen to this band, check them out, as the quality is there for them to go far. Indeed, let’s hope we seem them back in the city before too long.
