The Papertiger Sound began life as Dan Gelder's new music project in July 2006. It was created as a way to get back to the music he grew up with, namely My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, New Order and the Jesus and Mary Chain. The project stayed firmly in the bedroom until a friend suggested he put the few songs he had written onto myspace.

In September of that year Ker, a Canadian songwriter, wrote a blog on her myspace saying she was moving to Leeds in the United Kingdom and was looking for musicians to collaborate. As dan was also living in Leeds, it seemed too good an opportunity to turn down.
