The PaperSons are four extremely talented guys from the Bay Area playing rhythmically driven alternative rock illustrated with beautiful, open harmonies. Their sound has been compared to such bands as Cursive, Queens of the Stone Age and Thrice, with a personal nod to Sparta, with whom they share a taste for hardcore. Borne from the ashes of the group's freshman band, Midnight in a Perfect World, The PaperSons are the end result of one member change and some serious soul searching. The founding members are guitarist Phil Pristia, bassist Fran Dickinson, and Dennis Rodriguez on Drums. The newest addition to the lineup is Tom McCullough whose voice, with it's earnest, almost pleading quality, smoothes out the driving edge of the music. '[The Paper Sons} go for the alt rock jugular, but in different and suprisingly enjoyable ways...The Papersons lean more toward emo with a sound that brings to mind Cursive and The New Trust.' - The Onion - Volume 43 Issue 47, pg38.
