No longer firmly fixing their gaze upon past, The Brunettes have begun to turn their lights toward the future with Paper Dolls; moreover, these bouncy little bedroom discos should be more than enough to ensure that the band’s present (and future) remain bright as well.
There might be a few lost moments where the music stagnates from a lack of true skill where neither member of the pair does much but they come in sparring moments. And for the most part, the songs are too direct to even truly analyze them as anything more than lifting, carefree music.
Under The RadarPaper Dolls is highlighted by more drum machines and more synthesizers than any previous Brunettes release, yet features some of the duo's most intimate and delicate work. [Winter 2010, p.68]
Sure, the electro-pop leanings on Paper Dolls may sap their songs of some of the dreamy haze they had before, but in its place we get an immediate brightness to this collection, one that doesn’t fade with repeat plays. In the sure hands of the Brunettes, Paper Dolls turn out to be quite sturdy.
