As much as I enjoy it, I know that the dark Americana/Western noir of This Lonesome Paradise is probably not for everyone. That being said, their latest single might be the closest they've come to being widely accessible so far. "Into the Sun" is kind of like an odd crooner country song. It's closer to artists like Roy Orbison and Chris Isaak than you would expect, albeit through a dark and bizarre lens. My previous observation that This Lonesome Paradise sounds like it's from the soundtrack to a movie that Quentin Tarantino will make in thirty years still works for "Into the Sun." This is an unexpectedly groovy version of their dark Americana that is going to surprise a lot of people.
You can listen to "Into the Sun" below. Nightshades is due out October 21 on American Standard Time Records, and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on This Lonesome Paradise, be sure to check them out on Instagram.
