Paradise Vultures – Catacombs

Yes, please. We need more of this classic vibe out there. So pack your bags, mainstream pop stars and starlets out there. It’s time for something better than you offer. It’s time for good old rock.

The retro-flavored, straightforward flair of the new release of Los Angeles bass-and-drums duo Paradise Vultures comes with a lot. Drive? Of course. Sassiness? Yessir. Sprinkles of rockin’ dirt? You can bet your sweet behind. In times when the masses out there seem to like artificial things more and more, it’s so refreshing to have a handmade and honest sound like “Catacombs” out there. It’s tunes like this that take a swing on all shiny and polished, and I absolutely love it.

From concept to music to video, everything just smiles at you with an attitude. This track feels authentic with everything it does, even with the trippy snippets of the video. Tommy Senter and Matty Barreca, the masterminds behind Paradise Vultures, are not afraid to combine a classic rock vibe with a modern approach of fun, and in doing so, they lift the rock genre to a familiar yet fresh level. And they didn’t just put out a driving banger, no. Being about the intoxicating drive to search for a messiah in all the wrong places, the tune also transmits a meaningful message with both playful and serious lyrics and pictures. And in my opinion, combining feelable music with a message is the top tier of music creation.
