Bio

Paradise Club

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, and leave sonic hints of their youth spent cutting their teeth in the mosh pits of Adelaide's hardcore 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.

In their short career, Paradise Club have already left an indelible mark on the Adelaide music scene, earning the coveted Robert Stigwood Artist Fellowship Program, a trip to showcase at the ‘Made In Adelaide’ BIGSOUND BBQ in September and mentorship from Dan Crannitch (Leader Cheetah) and Stu Macqueen (Wonderlick Entertainment)

Nationally, they’ve shared stages with some of Australia’s best and brightest (Endless Heights, Ali Barter, Horror My Friend, Sleep Talk) and 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 (and somewhat bizarre) feeling of having their live set broadcast nationally, chatting live-to-air with Linda Marigliano and copping multiple spins with Richard Kingsmill (2018) and Bridget Hustwaite (Good Nights) across their three singles.

New single ‘Heart Of Gold’ sees the band move in a decidedly more pop-influenced direction, while still staying true to the dream-emo groundwork laid on previous singles ‘Away’, ‘Saturday Night’ and ‘Cap 2’. 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 new love and of their next chapter.

For me this is like Turnover meets Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, which sounds a bit random I guess but I just love your sound SO much. Constantly bopping my head!
