Flight Attendant are a Nashville based indie band who were making a name for themselves as a live proposition locally before Covid-19 shuttered venues.
Paradise is the group’s second single of 2021, the video for the track can be seen below and the song is available on streaming services.
Paradise follows a brace of musically contrasting 2020 singles in the form of hypnotic and pulsating guitar based Man Of Chaos and the sensuous yet sombre piano-centred ballad Comedy Show (timed to coincide with the US presidential election), plus the post-punk earworm Dogs that was issued in early 2021.
Paradise is an exhilarating rush with a timely title as the world slowly emerges out of lockdown. Reflected in its promo clip, shot in a local junkyard with the group members indulging in high jinks, they describe the song as “about feeling a release, whether that’s good behaviour, bad behaviour, or something in the grey. Whatever was holding you back or making you feel restricted in some way, this song is about those immediate feelings that come after, revelling in instant gratification and then assessing situations for what they are.”
The debut album by Flight Attendant will be released later in 2021 by Moraine Music in association with Membran. They are ready for take-off.
