Alternative band, Post Paradise, just released their latest EP, Bring It To Life (Side A), their most diverse work yet. This collection showcases their signature sound of duel shredding between both the cello and guitar, which produces an experience that is as thought-provoking and introspective as it is epic. The foursome also released a music video for their single, "The River" now streaming on YouTube. Bring It To Life (Side A) is now available on iTunes.
One of the biggest names in the Colorado music scene, Post Paradise have made a name for themselves with the cinematic spin they put on the alternative rock scene and the unique choice to have a lead cellist in lieu of a lead guitarist. Their latest EP, Bring It To Life (Side A) explores the band's varying inclinations producing their best work yet. The EP kicks off with the steady building anthemic lead-in of "Generator," an unhealthy love song comparing devotion to addiction. Nick Duarte's vocals shift from soft to belting as the tension builds in the contemplative styling of cellist, Amy Morgan. The first single from the EP is the frenetic track, "Ordinary," an expression of feeling frustrated when others lose sight of their passions and become apathetic. Earlier this month, the band released their second single from the EP, "The River," accompanied by a cinematic music video. Though the band is known for their sense of growing tension and anxiety in their music, Post Paradise also showcase a vulnerable side of affection in tracks like "Four Years," a celebration of lasting love and "All There Is," a ballad that looks forward with optimism and sincerity. The EP was engineered, produced and mixed by Andrew Berlin (Rise Against, NOFX, As I Lay Dying) and mastered by Jason Livermore at Blasting Room Studios. Bring It To Life (Side A) is the first half of a record project that consists of two EPs with six songs each. Side B, the second half, is due out in 2016.
Originally hailing from Florida, Nick Duarte always felt that his home, known as paradise, was anything but. After relocating to Colorado, it seemed only appropriate his next endeavor would be called Post Paradise. Known for the theatrical flair of Amy Morgan's work on the cello and Nick Duarte's signature vocals and edgy riffs, they create the eclectic and dark edge of Post Paradise strengthened by Mark Roshon on drums and percussion, and Brian Zeiger on bass guitar. With a prominent presence in the Colorado music and arts scene, Nick Duarte serves as both Musical Ambassador for the Colorado Board of Tourism with Morgan, as well as serving on the board of local music organization, SpokesBUZZ. Post Paradise is known for their spectacular live performance with an elaborate light show and Morgan's cello-shredding. The theatrics they bring to their performance have earned Post Paradise opening slots for bands such as Murder By Death, Twenty-One Pilots, Walk The Moon and Panic at the Disco.
As their most refined and polished work yet, Bring It To Life (Side A) exemplifies Post Paradise's boundless abilities and exceptional craftsmanship. Since showcasing in 2015's SXSW, Post Paradise is on the rise, gaining new fans far beyond Colorado as they set their sights higher. Bring It To Life (Side A) is now available on iTunes and Spotify and "The River" music video is now streaming on YouTube. Follow the band at PostParadiseRock.com!
