The Skinny: Cello driven alt-rock band, Post Paradise just released their latest single “Ordinary” from their upcoming EP, due out this fall. The track packs an energetic punch with an eclectic flair that make Post Paradise unparalleled in their alternative rock sound.

“Ordinary” launches straight into Nick Duarte’s captivating vocals and guitar work that are supported by Amy Morgan’s vicious cello shredding. The combination is the uniquely eclectic alternative rock that has earned Post Paradise comparison to acts such as Murder By Death, Incubus and Finch. “Ordinary” is an unforgiving rock jam that has listeners head-banging and singing along instantly with its captivating hook and addicting distorted guitar riffs.

The track was engineered, produced and mixed by Andrew Berlin (Rise Against, NOFX, As I Lay Dying) at Blasting Room Studios. “Ordinary” comes from a place of skepticism as Duarte sings the chorus, “we won’t let them take our future away, we all feel the same.” The single looks forward with a sense of perseverance as he continues, “we’re not gonna break, we’re not gonna fade.” When explaining the meaning behind the single, Duarte says, “I worry that too many people forget what they cared about when the world seemed theirs for the taking, before life started to happen to them and they pushed their dreams aside. We can’t give up our dreams so easily.”
