PARAGON CAUSE – “AWAY FROM ME”
A Spill Exclusive Music Premiere
Paragon Cause’s new dream pop single, “Away from Me” represents the sonically optimistic daydream coda to their dark and cheerfully pessimistic debut album Escape. The genre bending song equips an array of dreamy rhythm guitar with tastefully executed vocal harmonies, resulting in a unique sound that is both optimistic and immersive enough to get lost in. The melancholic piano motif of the song maintains the theme of the entire album but pushes the haunting vocal melody along. The song starts soft but expands with each measure, building layers of guitars, synthesizers and melody. The song is further accentuated by a classic 808/909 drum beat that moves well with the song and comfortably supports a set of emotionally exposed lyrics and vocals. A song that leaves you wanting more. Watch out for this track on the duo’s upcoming album, Escape, coming this May.
“Away from me is the most optimistic song from our first album. Thematically, we wanted to ask a question, how can you get away from yourself when you are not the problem? Getting lost in a dream until you find what you are looking for is one answer.”
