“Paper Cranes 折り鶴 music is a sip of folky pop goodness: warm, beautiful, sweet and balanced, with cherry and oak notes.

With songs that ponder the meaning of life, love, and our fleeting existence in this beautiful world, Paper Cranes 折り鶴 weave their stories into captivating and dynamic live performances, in songs that move between delicacy and abandon.

Husband-and-wife team Fraser and Naomi Browne are the driving force behind the group, and the music shows touches of their upbringing, a mixture of Japanese, Swedish and Australasia. The band’s music delves into themes of togetherness and relationships, the echoes that pull us together and send us apart.

The band released ‘The Road Home’ in 2015 and wrote their follow-up album ‘Voices’ in Huia, near the beautifully scenic Waitakere Ranges in Auckland, and the port city of Tauranga. The new album was released on early 2019 and debuted at #1 on the IMNZ charts and #12 on the NZ artists NZ music charts, and the band went on a full tour in support of the album. “
