Paper/Boy Biography

Paper/Boy a four-piece indie rock band formed in Derry in 2017. While having started as a two-piece originally, guitarist/lyricist Joshua McNutt and drummer Lochláinn Kelly were keen to upgrade the loud anthemic sound they already had going for them. Taking part in a local music camp during the holidays, the duo were introduced to many talented musicians just like them, but the ones who would catch their eye would be bassist Canavan and guitarist Caoilfhinn McFadden. They not only shared the common connection of all being from Donegal, but also shared the interest in playing together as a band.

Paper/Boy a four-piece indie rock band formed in Derry in 2017.

While having started as a two-piece originally, guitarist/lyricist Joshua McNutt and drummer Lochláinn Kelly were keen to upgrade the loud anthemic sound they already had going for them. Taking part in a local music camp during the holidays, the duo were introduced to many talented musicians just like them, but the ones who would catch their eye would be bassist Canavan and guitarist Caoilfhinn McFadden. They not only shared the common connection of all being from Donegal, but also shared the interest in playing together as a band.

Inspired by the modern guitar-driven indie rock/punk songs of Car Seat Headrest and Green Day, and implementing uses of witty, metaphorical and personal lyrics ala Damien Rice and Paul Noonan, it was clear that songwriter Joshua’s original demos were not meant to be heard acoustically, but rather in a fully electric band set-up. With all the members’ talents for creating music put into use, the band managed to transform these pieces into emotionally-powered indie-punk anthems, helping Paper/Boy garner a loyal fanbase after both support and headline gigs in Derry, Letterkenny and Belfast, only growing every time after each gig.
