The Paver formed in 2008 as a power trio. We added cello in 2010. Our music is a carefully articulated study in aggression and consonance. Listeners have said we remind them of Milemarker, Cursive, Murder By Death, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, "Codeine songs sung by Steve Albini and Nina Hagen," "Shostakovich played through loudspeakers during wartime" or "Baroque-Core." The Paver has released two full-length albums, two EPs and two singles, and have toured the midwest and east coast.
