"We first saw Paper Tigers in the Midway live stream and here we are again this Saturday. We also saw them just last week on the Once Virtual Venue. They've made themselves available for these shows where others haven’t and that's helped raise their profile . They're getting some traction, at least with us, just on their live streams with no prior live show to base an opinion on!!

They are able to somehow transmit their intensity through the live feed. They rock loud but not too loud for the electronics evidently because you can hear some tonal variety. Their songs also are distinct, they don’t go by in a blur. They played for almost 45 minutes. We would say that it was one of the

best live sets yet. You know what we are going to say – now, we are dying to see them live!" - Boston Groupie News

"We’ve only seen Paper Tigers in live stream and we've become big fans. That's a first for us!! Somehow this group’s power comes through the feeds like few others. In this show they had one song with a chorus of “We are not afraid to be alone” that hit home especially now. They are proving that you can make an impression even now under the most limiting circumstances." - Boston Groupie News


The Outer Limits EP - June 20, 2020

Mononoke EP - January 15, 2021



Paper Tigers is an indie rock band from Allston, MA formed in 2019.  With energetic drums, melodic guitars, intelligent lyrics, and undeniably catchy hooks, the ensemble is on an unrelenting path to add value, power, and presence to the New England indie scene.    

Paper Tigers features Michael Medlock on vocals, Bjarki Gudmundsson on guitar, Matt Hughes on bass, and Ben "Cutty" Cuthbert on drums.  Each member brings a different musical genre to the table, colliding into a fresh sound that New England is desperate for. 

Cutty explains the band's approach to playing, writing music, and performing:

"Our philosophy is simple, at the end of the day, a great band has to do two things: write good songs and deliver 110% at each performance.  People should walk away with one of our tracks stuck in their heads, realizing that they just witnessed something unique; something special."

In January 2021, Paper Tigers released their second EP "Mononoke" on Apple iTunes and all major streaming services.
