Puppet Theory – Papillon

401 0

Puppet Theory have rapidly progressed as a band over the last few months, and after setting the bar pretty high with their previous single I, The King, the band’s follow up Papillon certainly had its work cut out to match up. However, once again, the Manchester-based indie four-piece have pulled it out of the bag and it proved to be well worth the wait.

I, the King was in your face, a heavier sound to what the band had previously released, but great nonetheless. Papillon on the other hand, is a lighter sound but equally as catchy – if not more so. It has many different elements to it, and the chorus on the new track was a nice little surprise on first listen. You’ll understand what we mean once you hear it…

Puppet Theory are like a relevant resurgence of noughties indie, and who didn’t love noughties indie? We have previously compared the vocals to that of The Wombats’ frontman Matthew Murphy, and this style is something you don’t tend to hear with indie bands today. It is refreshing, a little bit different to what is out there at the minute and it definitely has the fun factor.

I, The King and Papillon have both highlighted Puppet Theory’s lyrical and musical progression quite well. However, what we love about the new single is the contrast to its predecessor. More often than not, bands bring out identical sounding singles and play it safe, but this track shows more depth to the band and what Puppet Theory have in their locker.

It is essentially a happy song, and one you could certainly imagine a big crowd jumping to at a gig or a festival. The band recently played their biggest show to date at The Ruby Lounge in Manchester, but this was only shortly after Papillon had been released. You can be sure that once more of the fans know the song a little bit better it will be a firm favourite at future gigs…

Just in case you haven’t heard the new single, here it is:
