Beatrix – “Paranoid”


The heaviest track from Beatrix‘s upcoming album Vertigo, “Paranoid” grips with a moody sound propelled by haunting vocal introspection and piano-driven atmospherics. The “freaking out,” vocal escalation sends chills as the rhythms intensify, culminating in the ghostly multi-vocal “locking the door,” sequence.

The momentum continues from there; the “nobody’s there,” vocal and accompanying guitars remind fondly of Radiohead. The title-touting sequence proves deliciously unsettling thereafter, as psych-friendly guitar tones intertwine with the clamoring piano adornments. “Paranoid” has us hotly anticipating Beatrix’s forthcoming album Vertigo.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
