With Go On, the follow-up to his internationally-acclaimed self-titled debut, Paper Beat Scissors once again masterfully maneuvers between grandiose chamber pop, aching experimentation, and cinematic sonic landscapes. Shifting from hypnotic loops to full brass arrangements, screaming lap steel to stripped-back acoustic guitar, the album teems with meticulously crafted and carefully plotted layers. At the centre of it all, Tim Crabtree’s haunting voice burns with honesty and rawness.Produced by Crabtree, Go On was set in motion in London, Ontario in 2013 with engineer Dean Nelson (Beck, Thurston Moore, Bat for Lashes). Fleshed out in Nova Scotia, tracks were bounced around Montreal, New York, and even rural Lancashire, before the album was mixed by Graeme Campbell (Buck 65, Rich Aucoin).


“Go On is a stunning achievement” – NOW Toronto

Go On is a demonstration of Crabtree’s unique ability to use classical and electronic elements to blur the lines of folk music and leave you breathless.” 8/10 – EXCLAIM!“defies categorization. The most definite expectation you can have is of music that’s textured, beautiful, nearly magical.” – CBC MUSIC“Go On is sure to become one that refuses to collect dust on the shelf. – CANADIAN BEATS“With the focus still on Crabtree’s haunting voice, [he] treads new paths. Full of stirring sounds, layered vocals and subtle string and brass arrangements.” – ROLLING STONE
