Planes on Paper
"There has been no shortage of bands that sound like Planes on Paper in the last 10 years of Seattle music, which makes it simultaneously delightful and frustrating when one of them is clearly a full head taller than the others."
- Sean Nelson, The Stranger -
"[...] it’s easy to see why Planes on Paper is starting to attract serious attention on the neo-folkie scene."
-Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times
"Navid Eliot and Jen Borst’s music as Planes on Paper is built around the duo’s talent for crafting layered, meticulous folk songs matched with organic, skillful playing."
-KEXP - Seattle, WA
Planes on Paper expertly maneuvers dual vocals to produce this eerie, serene, beautiful aesthetic. Their acoustic sets are simultaneously mellow and powerful.
-Fallon Schlossman, WNYC - New York
"In a modern age where indie folk groups with male/female harmonies are as common as a Starbucks on every corner, Planes on Paper offer an organic alternative, refreshing in its artistry." - The Revue
“Navid and Jen have a captured magic between them, and the result is a truly beautiful musical partnership.”
"This is folk music at the highest level."
