Planes on Paper

"The songs played by Planes on Paper have contemplation at their core. As heard on the Yakima duo's sole EP, Ruins, Navid Eliot and Jen Borst use delicate harmonies, well-wrought lyricism, and a deep understanding of pop songcraft to patiently explore ideas and landscapes that bloom from banal to unforgettable."
Mark Baumgarten, Seattle Weekly

"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 -

"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
