hmv's Next Big Thing... #235 The Paranoyds
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Los Angeles firebrands The Paranoyds...
Who Are They?
The Paranoyds are bassist/singer Staz Lindes, keyboardist/singer Laila Hashemi, guitarist Lexi Funston and drummer David Ruiz.
LA Natives, their line-up was cemented in 2015 and they've been slowly building towards next month's big event, the arrival of their debut album, the wonderfully titled Carnage Bargain, which hits on September 13th.
What Do They Sound Like?
The foursome blend the scuzzy punk of The Go-Gos and the pure power of Bikini Kill with the lyrical smarts of vintage Hole.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Raucous energy, power punk and a whipsmart lyrical bite. It's a lot of good stuff.
Can I Hear Something?
Indeed you can, the album's title track is below for you:
