Bio

Paradise Club

Perfectly encapsulating the Paradise Club vibe, “The Seed” expertly weaves shimmering guitars with pulsating beats and rich synths that completely consumes the soul. Lyrically, the single is an introspective examination of a rough patch and coming through the other side with fond memories.

Frontman Gere Fuss explains: “I flew to Melbourne for a few days to finish off the album. We spent two and half days writing absolute shit,” recalls frontman Gere Fuss. “We knew this would be the first song on the record and wanted something memorable. A couple hours before driving back to the airport, we finally had it. The song talks about a rough patch I was in, going out every night, but then moves to explain that through all of that I was able to build friendships and earn experiences to write about and look back on with a smile.”

Crafted over three-and-a-half years, Paradise Club romantically deliberates themes of love, death, family and friends tempered with a blissful soundtrack that yearns for carefree summer days that bleed into endless nights on the dance floor.

Named one of the 10 Australian Picks for July by NME, on their debut, the publication said, “the Adelaide band blend warm, textural layers of guitars and synths with propulsive rhythms for an album that sways as much as it bops, soundtracking the intoxicating, heady feeling of nostalgia.” Additionally, Beat Mag stated, “the album’s equally as concerned with indie-rock songcraft as it is interweaving guitar melodies and textural atmospherics,” but Blunt Mag summed it up best, labelling Paradise Club as “shimmering, blissful angst”.

Blooming onto the Adelaide scene in 2017, Paradise Club instantly stood out as a DIY force - everything from writing to recording to producing the accompanying music videos, the band had it covered. They quickly forged a strong identity both sonically and aesthetically while honing their stagecraft supporting the likes of Ocean Alley, Trophy Eyes, Endless Heights and The Lemonheads while also opening up the Adelaide leg of Laneway Festival in 2018.

Another fine slice from Paradise Club's debut album! Full of emotion - as always, but I love how bright in texture it is and the way it steps into more of an uplifting/upbeat sound. Super dreamy too!

the emphatic pop moments are spot on but i really love those melodic chords that pop up a few times then take command in that last minute, they stick out in a great way.
