TRACK REVIEW: Club Paradise – Don’t Call Me Over | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

The masters of sun-soaked, panoramic indie synths return with another crystalline banger with everything you’ve come to expect from the Newcastle-based four-piece. Much like M83, The 1975 and Foals, Club Paradise have clearly studied the sacred texts of 80s pop and 00s indie and learned wisely: hooks, walls of sound, huge choruses, funky grooves and confident, forthright song-writing are all in abundance in all that they do, and Don’t Call Me Over has it in spades.

There’s a myriad of sonic left turns throughout the track’s brief runtime, but it never tries too hard or buckles under the weight of its colossal hooks, and wisely avoids slipping into the all-too-easy trap of sounding like a pastiche of their influences. Marvellous stuff.
