Post Paradise / Press

“4 out of 5 stars Fort Collins, alternative cello-rock five-piece is solide as an alt-rock band, but the addition of that cello, played by Amy Morgan, makes this band and the album infinitely more interesting than most modern alternative groups. Everyone in the group is a talented musician, but it’s the cello that ties it all together. ”

“A cello-driven pop/post-punk quintet that rocks out with an ear for the symphonic, Post Paradise is a tight outfit whose aspirations are far reaching but accessible. With The New Normal, they belt out fifteen strong and diverse tracks, showcasing their copious catalogue and songwriting abilities. “Sex Panther” sets the stage with a hard going cello and bass combination that chugs along into a heavy yet subtle sound that pervades the album. Post Paradise pays homage to Bach with their amazing rendition of “Interlude: Bach Cello Suite No. 1.” It is a satisfying interpretation that comes as a welcome refrain from the rest of the album; it’s an island of rest from the more poignant, emotive lyrics and composition of The New Normal. Fifteen tracks can seem daunting at first, but not one single song overstays its welcome. Balance is found throughout The New Normal, and is its forceful attraction. ”
