Single Review: Club Paradise's 'Brother'
Comebacks can too often feel forced and stale these days, a fact that was no doubt on the minds of the Street Party in Soho lads as they pieced together their new guise as Club Paradise.
Shrouded in mystery, the previously established band went on hiatus while they retuned and honed their craft, with a brand new direction and a handful of impressive live shows to keep old fans intrigued while gaining new ones along the way.
But if the prospect of a big comeback felt daunting to them, they needn’t have worried, as debut track ‘Brother’ demonstrates exactly what can go right with a fresh new coat of paint.
The band’s indie-pop hooks have been at the core of both their live performances and recorded material, a fact not lost on this track as it weaves its way into the listener’s consciousness with toe tapping fervour.
Undeniably retro in feel, yet new and exciting, ‘Brother’ manages to earn its place among the ever growing number indie anthems without ever feeling like a rinse and repeat of the classics it rubs against.
In a word though, the debut track could be described as triumphant as it shimmers with energy and drives home the desire of the band to dive back into the music scene head first and reclaim their title as demi-gods of the indie genre.
Club Paradise are without a doubt one of the most invigorating faces out there right now and we can’t wait to see what’s next for these lads.
