London's Paradise Follow (Successfully) The Examples Of Mazzy Star And Pale Saints

And I don't just mean in spirit, sound, and dreamy aesthetic.

No, more specifically, London band Paradise have covered Slapp Happy's "Blue Flower" which was previously covered to great effect by both Mazzy Star and Pale Saints.

And I'm happy to report that Paradise have done an exceptional job at interpreting this seminal cut. Expansive and haunting, this version owes more to Wild Beasts than Pale Saints. Add in a touch of Seefeel and you've got a winning cover.

After playing this cut about a dozen times like I did, please head over to Paradise's Facebook page:
