Paradise – Blue Flower
Paradise is a UK duo who made their debut only a few weeks ago. “Blue Flower” is the B-side to that single and is actually a cover of the original by 1970′s german band, Slapp Happy. Paradise’s version is both cerebral and epic. The track begins very slowly, with echoing vocals, and bright guitar. It grows and grows until we are hit with a large, heroic chorus singing the hook. Sure, it’s the oldest trick in book, but it weirdly feels like a while since I have heard it been used.
