Super Paradise - Quençebo

Achieving paradise sounds like a great goal, but some people are not satisfied with the simple extraordinary.  Take, for example, the Milan-to-London band formed by Francesco Roma and Nico Spreafico.  Adding Juliet Styles and Bradley Smith when to duo arrived in the UK, they  bypassed paradise and became Super Paradise.  And what is super paradise in this context?  It is the eight-song Quençebo, a bold, confident fusion of garage and dreampop, anthemic in scope and thrilling in the execution.  Seven songs are Francesco's original compositions, and the band added an excellent version of LCD Soundsystem's "All My Friends".  This is a powerful little package, bursting with joy, melody and energy.  You will be thankful for the replay button.

Quençebo is available now via Jigsaw records as a digital download or CD.  See the Bandcamp link below.
