Papaver Cousins Short Info

Papaver Cousins is a singer-songwriter duo of two brothers in arms, Oliver Szendrey-Nagy & Barnabas Nagy, exposing their desires, fears and perceptions in the manner of roots folk music.

Their compelling instrumental and vocal work evolved from listening backwards and forwards to Tom Waits’ “Closing Time” together to a point where tenderness and delicacy walk hand in hand with electrifying rock ‘n’ roll anthems. As such, their first single, “No God Can Cage My Love”, quickly gained attention to the duo upon its release in 2015.

In early 2017, Papaver Cousins released their first live material, “A Holy Night with Papaver Cousins”, along with a concert film of the same title. The EP captures the group performing an intimate concert in a small countryside chapel in rural Hungary, an ideal yet allegorical scenery and momentum for their most personal songs dealing with the concepts of love, society and religion.
Their first album, “Lack of Lightness”, is an equally ambitious yet even more colorful journey into this lyrical world. Many songs showcase the two at their best in writing and performing plain acoustic songs that make rooms a little warmer each time they’re played, while others take confident steps in the direction of contemporary alternative folk with vivid instrumentation and intriguing straightforward honesty. There’s a subtle sensitivity and intellect floating above “Lack of Lightness” both in moments dealing with love and family and also in songs quarreling with God Almighty. These songs invite you to hear about troubles without listening to anyone complaining, they tell you about loss, but they also offer relief and most importantly a great time thanks to the musical and personal chemistry between the two.

According to Oliver, “Lack of Lightness” is about how we try to save what we were fighting for. How we learn that what we’ve picked or taken can not be set back to where and how it used to be. How it doesn’t work with flowers nor with people.
