PARAGON CAUSE - To Release A Special European Edition Of Their Latest Album

Canadian duo Paragon Cause will release on 4th January 2019 a special European edition of their EscaPe album via AnalogueTrash. The album was innitially released in May this year. After recently signing to Manchester's AnalogueTrash label the duo are releasing an expanded version or their recent album, especially for us Europeans who may not have been aware of their Canadian charm. The European edition of the EscaPe features two new tracks, "Curiosity" and "Drop Me" – there's also an extended mix of the former track.
Marnie VanKheul and Kirwan Opthof are Paragon Cause, a Canadian duo based in Ottawa/Gatineau. Having met through a website used to help artists connect with like-minded musical spirits, the two say they knew they had something special when within minutes they were jamming on The Beatles' "Norwegian Wood" – the two had made an instant musical connection!
The duo is known to dwell in shadows, constantly exploring the darkness of their music in order to discover new shades of black and colour, all tempered with the hues of oblivion and vast emptiness. They take daunting concepts and make them comforting and relaxing, embracing complicated topics and finding relief in them.
They both bring their diverse musical backgrounds to Paragon Cause. Marnie cites classical music, The Mamas and the Papas and The Beatles as formative influences, whilst Kirwan says: "I basically want to be as cool as Tribe Called Quest or the Digible Planets, but I know that's impossible. So, I draw from a lot of my favourite bands and musicians I think are special. The Cure, The Raveonettes, Janes Addiction, The Suuns, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Howling Wolf and Portishead."
The result is a perfect counterpoint to Marnie's influences: a bit more rock in the mix, urban percussive rhythms, shimmering 50s melodrama and gothic undertones that invoke comparisons with Ry Cooder and Lana Del Rey's more reflective moments. Listen to the track "Sunny" in the player below. Link
