Paper Tiger with Shafiq Husayn – Weight In Space

Leeds-based band Paper Tiger hook up with Shafiq Husayn (1/3 of the iconic alternative hip hop group Sa-Ra) for Weight in Space.

Speaking about the amazing collaboration Paper Tiger’s Greg Surmacz says “We approached him without really expecting to hear anything back – Sa-Ra and all of his work has been hugely influential for us – and not only did he respond, but he contributed to the writing and production too. The final result blew our minds.”

The single comes complete with a stunning remix by One-Handed Music’s soulful producer Bastien Keb, who, staying true to his MO, gives the song a loop-based, mellow and instrumentally rich sound. It also got the video treatment, courtesy of Prefix Studios, supporting Paper Tiger’s story-telling with a set of animated visual effects that complement the track so well.

Following their 2013 debut album Laptop Suntan, the 6-peice recently released their sophmore album Blast Off.
