PAPER Aeroplanes are a girl and a boy from the deepest West Wales who spend a lot of time on the M4 in their pursuit of pop perfection. Next Thursday on June 10 they make their way to Llanhilleth Miners Institute to headline the monthly Llanhilleth Acoustic Showcase.

Also appearing are the former members of Cardiff-based band Halflight, Richard Llewellyn and Sarah Howells.

Their work has been compared with the music of such diverse sources as Suzanne Vega, The Sundays, and The Cranberries. Their debut album The Day We Ran Into The Sea was described as "very, very good indeed, the finest radio album to come out of Wales since Rockferry", by BBC Radio Wales.

They are not afraid of a good tune and Howells' gorgeous voice is said to melt even the most hardened of hearts. As always the evening begins with an open mic session from 8pm and there is a suggested donation of £5 for entry.
