California’s The Paranoyds make the kind of punk that treads lines on other genres. Straight forward in its delivery with quirky notations, there’s a reason they’re as critically acclaimed as they are. Aside from the raucous and energetic live sets, their new two song E.P. Pet Cemetery is a great example of how diverse the four piece is. In the new video for the B-side “Hotel Celebrity” they not only showcase that but offer up a narrative to go with it.
The song is punky with varying tones from the bass and the guitar with swapped out vocals. The group singing adds weight while when the chorus drops the band is as tight and in unison as ever. With pedal fuzzed guitar the song has plenty of diverse elements without losing your ears. The video sways between the band performing and acting like celebrity ladies who lunch in a comical fashion.
The video is ready to view above. The song is available to stream on all services. The Pet Cemetery E.P. can be purchased on a limited run seven inch directly from Suicide Squeeze Records.
