Born in Oslo of a fortuitous meeting and instant connection between four musicians, whose collective previous and very varied experience working with artists & bands such as Madrugada, PJ Harvey, Marianne Faithfull, Longview, Anna Calvi, Bat for Lashes to name drop but a few, brought about a common desire to form a band that would attempt to focus on the immediacy of explosive live performance and with the songwriting to supply it, as a way for them to counter the increasing falsehoods and insecurities of the current age. Their own version of Paradise…
Paradise in this case can then be accepted both to reflect the times or alternatively as an escape from them, engagement and detachment in tandem. The medium is the luxuriant sound of rock music in all its visceral joys, the message is resistance and anger, but also empathy and consolation.
Decay is always under the surface of Paradise. The luxuriant canopy of a jungle is born of a rotting undergrowth.
