Using their lyrics as an emotive conduit, Paradise Club brush against the washed out haze of dream pop’s golden age throughout the 80’s, whilst leaving sonic hints of their youth spent cutting their teeth in the Adelaide alternative scene.
Born of DIY roots, every aspect of Paradise Club’s output is created in-house. From song inception, through recording and mastering to the production of their music videos, every member has a pivotal part to play in the creation of their sonic and visual aesthetic.
Nationally, they’ve toured with some of Australia’s best and brightest (Trophy Eyes, Endless Heights, etc.), whilst supporting the likes of Ocean Alley, Northeast Party House and West Thebarton locally. Even at this early point of their career, the band are no stranger to the big-stage, having performed at festivals such as Stonecutters, A Day of Clarity and more. PC have enjoyed big love from triple j too; having been handpicked to play Adelaide Laneway Festival in 2018 by the broadcaster, being spotlighted as a triple j Unearthed feature artist in January, experiencing the thrilling feeling of having their live set broadcast nationally, chatting live-to-air with Linda Marigliano and copping multiple spins across Triple J.
With the announcement of joining Adelaide-based Management Agency Planet Shhh, along with their most extensive national tour to date, comes new single ‘Above Me’. The track sees the band move in a decidedly more pop-influenced direction, while still staying true to the dream-emo groundwork laid on previous singles ‘Saturday Night’, ‘Away’ and ‘Heart of Gold’. Sun drenched, jangly guitars decorate the track and catapult Paradise Club to new, euphoric heights. Going deep, they explore the emotional chasm and chaotic nature of romance; the hesitation, optimism, yearning, anxiety and melancholy of
human relationships. It’s the first fizzy, sweet taste of their next chapter, hurtling into the limelight of the wider, national music scene.
