Paper Lights has launched a unique recording project, inspired by and created in United States National Parks. The band has launched a kickstarter here to cover some essential ground level costs.
The ambient pop group members sold their personal vehicles and bought a Sprinter van to serve as their home and recording studio on the road. "Every step of this process has been a challenge, from selling most of our music gear to purchase a livable sprinter van, to securing sponsors for gear and equipment, to the now very expensive repairs we've had to make to keep the van running safely," the band shared on the kickstarter page. "Our journey through the parks began in February and then picked up again on May 24th. We are now spending the month of June finishing up our ambitious goal which we hope will include visiting a total of 13 of our favorite parks across the US."
In addition to the music, Paper Lights is recording accompanying videos of the environments they are creating in. They have already been making fans a part of their journey through their instagram page, where they are sharing breathtaking pictures from the road as well as glimpses at what it looks like to record in unconventional environments. The buzz from the project has landed them coverage on outlets like NBC (read here) as they launch the kickstarter. Listeners will be able to be an even more integral part of the process through backing on kickstarter, with rewards even including hikes and camping.
