Jason Quever’s indie-pop project Papercuts is releasing its sixth studio album, Life Among The Savages, on May 6th via Easy Sound Recording Co. Today, the group unveil “Life Among The Savages”, the titular second taste of the forthcoming LP.
Like the lead single “Still Knocking At The Door”, “Life Among The Savages” draws heavily from ornate string sections, making for a sweet, affecting brand of baroque pop. Here, Quever’s voice is understated and smooth, singing the song like a lullaby even as he mournfully coos, “Just leave me here, I don’t wanna go” and “I choose war.” Listen in below (via Stereogum).
