The Paranoyds Share New Song TRADE OUR SINS
Los Angeles-based gritty, garage rock four-piece The Paranoyds recently announced a new 7-inch, "Hungry Sam"/"Trade Our Sins" out on July 12th via new label home Suicide Squeeze. Following last month's release of the A-Side, today the band share the incredible B-side. Premiering on Matt Wilkinson's Beats 1 show via Apple Music, "Trade Our Sins" is a cautionary slowdance fit for the end of the night or the end of the world. Desire's doomsday has arrived, and as vocalist/bassist Staz Lindes warns "the train is coming" over a simple waltz of guitars and keys, we hear of two lovers in a now-or-never moment to share in sin's delights before it's too late. While the band describes this b-side as a one-off from their core sound, it offers an enchanting, seductively playful side of the band. Check out the track now HERE.
"Hungry Sam"/"Trade Our Sins" is out today digitally, and will be out on7-inch vinyl on July 12th. This will be a one-time pressing of 750, 650 on Orange Crush color vinyl, and 100 on Neon Yellow color vinyl - pre-order it HERE.
The core of The Paranoyds began with Laila Hashemi (keyboardist-vocals) andLexi Funston (guitars/vocals) whose friendship carried from preschool days to the halls of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. Ditching the playground for the practice space in high school, they caught up with Staz Lindes (bass/vocals) and welcomed David Ruiz (drums, vocals) in 2015. The Paranoyds' mission to craft songs with the gritty spunk and dark playfulness of a cult-classic splatter film is shared equally. Their self-described "sister vocal act" shares the snarling, over-it-but-totally-into-it vocals throughout their songs, moving from dirty surf-pop guitar jams to power-packed garage rock.
Perhaps as rejection of the digital construct in which self-promotion thrives, The Paranoyds have kept a low profile on social media, keeping in the punk traditions of eschewing societal norms. They do what precocious punk bands do best - hit the road and make the world listen. They know the world is watching, from their outings as direct support for DIIV, Albert Hammond Jr., Sunflower Bean, and BRONCHO.
