The single is his latest ethereal indie offering as he continues to explore sonic landscapes which allows listeners to immerse themselves into the purely captivating music that he creates. This is no different with ‘Paper Planes’ which is out worldwide now.

The track opens with sunset soothing production alongside delicate guitar and authentic beats which allows the vocals to take centre stage. Progressing and entwining over the duration of the whole song while feeling intimate and fulfilling all at the same time. 

When speaking about the single General Crush had this to say, “Paper Planes is a song about the power of imagination and attempts to travel far away while stuck in place. The song creates a world of imagined confidence through a Lush and ethereal soundscape. Paper Planes represents a reflection on self-discovery and breaking old patterns. It reflects an optimism in bringing new possibilities to life, even when the feeling is temporary.”

General Crush is the creative outlet for Ray Ward who grew up in a musical family and started his music career playing bass in local rock bands. What started as a side project has gradually become Ward’s primary musical focus and songwriting outlet. He captures the imagination of new fans and fellow artists alike with heartfelt, personal, emotive, and sometimes cryptic lyrical lyrics intertwined with a fusion of beats, guitars, strings, synths, and harmonies that combine to paint a confident picture.

‘Paper Plans’ follows up General Crush’s singles ‘Find New Friends’ and ‘Wide Escape’ which together currently boasts an impressive 2.2 million streams on Spotify alone.
