Charlotte rock band Paper Tongues performed their hit song "Ride To California" last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. I love the rap-rock sound of the song, which was first released on an EP last year then on their self-titled debut album that was released in March. The band of seven—Aswan North, Devin Forbes, Cody Blackler, Joey Signa, Clayton Simon, Jordan Hardee, and Danny Santell—formed just three years ago in Charlotte and have been enjoying a fairly rapid rise on the music scene since. One of their growing list of accomplishments includes writing the theme song for MTV's hit new show When I Was 17. Paper Tongues is currently on the Bang the Gong Tour with Civil Twilight and Neon Trees.
