On October 28th Paper Tiger will release their long awaited debut album 'Laptop Suntan' on Wah Wah 45s.

After a collection of head-turning EPs, featuring collaborations with leftfield electronic and hip-hop artists including Foreign Beggars, Homeboy Sandman, Joshua Idehen, Archie Pelago and more, the time for their full-length project has finally arrived.

In order to whet your appetites for this stunning debut long-player, get a glimpse of the full Paper Tiger live band in action. With hints of what you will experience on the record, plus bonus material only to be found here, this twenty-minute live beat tape is by turns hypnotically head-nodding, experimental and downright hilarious (shout out to all 'Emmerdale' lovers).

In the words of the band's electronics expert and woodwind player Greg Surmacz:

"As we were completing our album, we came up with the idea of recording some live interludes - our live band set-up and instrumental recording/sampling are a big part of what we do and we wanted to give a proper nod to that on the record.

We set up in a studio without much of a plan and ended up recording a few hours of jamming - all live, all completely improvised on the fly. There was an abundance of material, some of which we will sample and develop into fully-fledged tunes, but we thought it'd be nice to compile a short mixtape of some of the highlights. You can also hear the album's interludes in their original context."

Get a feel for this exceptional Leeds-based outfit now and prepare yourself for your very own Laptop Suntan in October.
