Paperhaus – “Cairo”


No slaves to brevity, Washington DC’s Paperhaus deliver 6:24 of energetic yet hypnotic guitar-driven drone-rock with “Cairo”, the first track of their forthcoming eponymous debut album, due out in February 2015.

The full-length Paperhaus is a wildly eclectic collection of songs delivered by several different singers, but the band’s sound is consistently rooted in a jagged, nervous post-punk energy.

Bonus fact: Paperhaus occasionally devote entire sets to covering Kraftwerk songs, which, once you hear this track, seems compellingly odd indeed.
