Paper Beat Scissors


“Lawless” (video) British-born/Canadian-based songwriter Tim Crabtree is about to release a new album through his project Paper Beat Scissors, and ahead of Go On‘s August 14 release on Forward Music Group/Ferryhouse, the track “Lawless” just got a video.

The song is cinematic folk rock number. The first couple of minutes are pastoral and pretty, but the arrangement explodes halfway through with an electrified crescendo. These dynamics are reflected in the video, as a romance between two women plays out in the form of a dramatic modern dance performance that’s filled with sunshine, rain, and lush forest scenery.

The clip was directed by Derek Branscombe. Scroll past Paper Beat Scissors’ tour schedule to watch it below.
