Brooklyn has always bred originality, and Argonaut&Wasp feed off the borough’s creativity to deliver the high-energy, bouncy rhythm of their new single, “Paradise.” The electronic-influenced funk band, which features a full set-up in their live performances, says the track was influenced by the lack of driving rhythms in DJ sets they attended in Brooklyn: “we would show up at all of these hip Brooklyn venues and everyone would be glued to the walls, everyone just standing there – lost in a state of confusion. We decided to capitalize on this feeling, this need for a rhythm and the need for a beat.”
With a synth introduction reminiscent of old LCD Soundsystem, the beat drops into a bell-infused funk jam quickly, and is driven by a bouncy bassline under airy vocals. If you’re looking for a song to get you through the Friday workday, look no further. “Paradise” is available via Noon Pacific now.
