What would be labelled as pop/punk a decade ago, is now being filed as pop/rock and the same goes with emo, whatever.......the new British pop/rock band Paper Tigers are just as much pop/punk as Good Charlotte but never mind. Today, it´s more appropriate to compare them to bands like All Time Low, Boys Like Girls and Young Bones. Their debut "Safe in words" EP is pretty good though, well it´s really good. With catchy choruses, almost singalong anthems, Paper Tigers are here to stay. This time, they picked "Back to you" as the first single but the band could´ve gone for any of these 4 songs because they´re all equally strong. If they tour hard to promote this EP, I bet it´s just a matter of time before they´re up there with the same fame as Lostprophets.
