Suzy & the Lifeguard Releases “NOW”

On Suzy & the Lifeguard’s new single, “NOW”, iridescent lounge-infused vocals beckon to a world where all the senses come alive, inspired and reawakened. Instrumentals crackle amongst a sunset glow as day succumbs to night in an effervescent beat. “NOW” will be released on January 27. It’s off the EP, ANIMA, produced by Grammy award-winning recording and mix engineer, Phil Joly (Patti Smith, Lana Del Rey, Daft Punk). Listen here

Suzy & the Lifeguard lures her listeners into a sci-fi dream world immersed in lagoons of swampy jazz and shimmering 1960’s psychedelic pop.  Chorus and verse dance in a dreamy introspective tango of yin and yang, climaxing into the subtle tension where epiphany and synchronicity arise. A space echo gives the feeling of a whale swimming in an ebbing tide before building up to a lasso whipping in the chorus of, “NOW, NOW, NOW.” Suzy Paradise says, “I wrote this song on ukulele sitting on lava rocks on a beach in Mallorca. What I heard was a rock song ala The Strokes with a super drivey Julian Casablanca sort of vibe.”

The ANIMA EP due out May 1, embarks on a shadowed journey of neon nightlife and moody ambiance. Recorded in Kauai at a friend’s chocolate farm/music studio, Paradise says, “It’s vibier than the last record. It’s a bit darker overall, but it’s also still silly and fun. I feel like it’s an honest reflection of not only what I have experienced in the last five years but also the fun and magical space we were in.”
