The Paper Cranes are a husband and wife indie-pop band from Victoria, British Columbia whose specialty is crafting infectiously melodic pop songs that make you want to dance until you pass out and cry into your pillow at the very same time.
During the 3 years that The Paper Cranes have been active they have supported bands like Pretty Girls Make Graves, Wolf Parade, Islands, and The Walkmen among many others and have been showcased at international festivals such as Pop Montreal and Toronto's North by Northeast Music Festival. Their single, " I'll Love You Until My Veins Explode" was given a four star rating by Pitchforkmedia.com and the CBC named them one of the 10 bands to watch in 2008 alongside Crystal Castles and Tokyo Police Club. Their 2008 full-length album, Halcyon Days, has enjoyed a considerable run on college radio charts and songs from the album have been featured prominently in episodes of the Comedy Network series, House Party. Their song, "Rabbit in a Snare" has also been featured in a Nissan television commercial.
