London-based solo artist and producer Sol Paradise’s third single “Tranquil Life” is a reverb-drenched ticket to a sun-kissed aural plateau. A soundscape this sweet can only have been served from the soul.
With stylistic nods to the likes of Modest Mouse and Beck along with Sol Paradise’s signature hazy sound which eclipses the best of Alt 90s, he found the perfect balance of nostalgic accessibility and thoughtful authenticity.
The lyrics wrap themselves around the concept of knowing what you want out of life but having no idea how to get there – something which will be resonant for many, especially with lockdown langour still thick in the air.
After reaching in excess of 32,000 streams with their debut single and considering stunning evocative poignancy with Tranquil Life, it is easy to feel that there’s very little that could get in the way of this magnetic artist and his imploringly distinctive sound.
