London quintet Super Paradise release new video for their latest single “6:30”

Forming in Milan, Super Paradise, founded by Francesco Roma and Nicolò Spreafico, brought their self-styled dream-garage sound to London, releasing their debut album in 2016. From here its become a relentless live project, playing numerous scuzzy headline and support shows across the citys buzziest venues, honing their distorted and hook-laden tunes. Joining Francesco and Nicolò for this endeavour is Anna Arfen (keys), Charlie Davis (bass) and Bradley Hillier-Smith (Drums).

Dropping infectious Lo-Fi singles and EPs over the last year or so with a sound somewhere between Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall and early Pixies demos, has nourished the live set. Tunes are often accompanied by highly stylised visuals, and their volatile new single 6:30 follows suit both sonically and aesthetically, whilst stepping things up in the energy stakes.

The main inspiration came from6:30as a Caribbean dance moveexplains lead vocalist Francesco,I like that it could also mean 6:30am, dawn. End of the night, end of the dance. Its always a bit of a weird time. You could still be out after an insane night, yet youll walk past people who are doing the complete opposite on their way to work. Theres a bit of uncertainty about it.

This uncertainty is reflected in the sound. Flitting between dreamy segments and gritty riffs, tempos and rhythms shift around too to echo the confusion. Its noise, tamed to inspire both emotion and energy in the listener.

What we wanted to do with this track was create something which immediately jumped out and grabbed attention. The track starts with a hook thats fast, impactful, frenetic and catchy, before taking the listener to unexpected places on a distorted journey of shifting tone and dynamics. Throughout were building anticipation, before unleashing a crescendo of noise, finally tying it back and returning unexpectedly to the original hook.

The music video for the single, directed and edited by Francesco Roma himself, feeds the distorted frenetic aesthetic that Super Paradise embodies. Watch here

The track was produced by Euan Hinshelwood, of Young Husband and Wesley Gonzales, offering a nice pedigree for the sound. This is bolstered by support slots with Dilly Dally, Warbly Jets and Black Honey. Theres also sync in a Ray Ban advert to boot.
