Now Hear This: Red City Radio | Paradise

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “We took the album title from the song of the same name,” Red City Radio singer-guitarist Garrett Dale says of their latest album Paradise. “(It’s) about finding your own paradise – even if that’s just a hard journey you’re going to take. That’s what paradise means to me – a paradise of the mind, finding truth and peace and love through your honest, horrible realities. It’s all how you look at it, all perception. Paradise can even be a prison if you look at it that way.”

“It’s this internal state that you find within yourself,” agrees guitarist Ryan Donovan, “within your own journey, within your own reconciliations with your own demons, or even just finding peace inside in whatever it is that you love in whatever capacity. People find paradise in just sitting at home on the couch with their dog or cat, people find paradise writing music, people find paradise painting or reading – it’s all kind of conceptual and internalised.”

The 12 songs that make up Paradise can, if you want them to, act as a kind of mirror of the soul – one that you can look into to analyse who and where you are and, more, importantly, what you can do, even if things seem overwhelmingly bad, to push through.”
