The Paranoid Style Take the Defeatist Route on ‘Giving Up Early (On Tomorrow)’

Last month energetic garage-pop upstarts the Paranoid Style premiered the lead single, “Common Emergencies,” from their forthcoming debut record. Now they’ve shared another, an existential-sounding tune plainly titled “Giving Up Early (On Tomorrow).”

“I’ve always had an aversion to songs which are nakedly manipulative, or optimistic in a cock-eyed way, so this was just sort of an antidote to that,” frontwoman Elizabeth Nelson tells Consequence of Sound of the no-nonsense single. “In a fun way, it’s saying: ‘Things are bad, things are going to remain bad in perpetuity, and I hereby recuse myself from the responsibility of hope for the future.”

Listen below, and grab the Paranoid Style’s forthcoming Rolling Disclosure, due July 15th on Bar/None Records.
