*The Following Press Release Was Issued By Jenny Banai*
|“Paper Plain” is a poetic stream of consciousness exposing my paper-thin human heart and its desire to express love freely, but in reality, my feelings are faded words stuck inside crumpled ideas. |
Writing “Paper Plain” was rough, having developed feelings for someone I knew I shouldn’t. I actually discarded the song, because I didn’t like exposing my conflicted nature.
Months passed and I experienced yet another short-lived relationship, feeling quite frustrated at my heart.
I wanted the freedom to love someone, but instead, was brought low in my confusion, expressing through tears and lament, very weak prayers. In the end, I opened the crumpled idea “Paper Plain” was and tried to iron out its creases.

I love the feeling of the simple groove carried by mostly two chords – not my regular style. We recorded the drums in a garage, using an old mattress as sound proofing and decided on my bedroom vocal take over a pristine studio.
This song reveals my weaknesses. Simply put, I am human and so are you.
