    On April 22nd, Paradise releases their sophomore record, “Soldiers of the Modern Age,” propelled by the underground recognition of their debut, “Diary of an Old Soul.” Recorded over two days in a living room at the Magic Closet on the south side of Portland, Oregon, the record is an authentic representation of Paradise’s uniquely vintage-inspired sound complete with Farfisa and Hammond Organ.

    “Soldiers of the Modern Age” explores the complexities of growing up sheltered in the Bible Belt of the United States. Poetically narrating a young man’s adventure from boyhood to manhood, singer Steven Denekas tells his story without hesitation. Armed with only a microphone and his guitar, he relives the complications of youth in a raw, didactic and personal way.


    The spirit of “Soldiers of the Modern Age” argues against monotony and routine. It’s a sound which contends with the music industry standard of masking a band’s true identity behind the digital machine of sound-altering options. Driven by unique storytelling and an unfettered sound, “Soldiers of the Modern Age” is a liberated exultation for the listener…and the journey is triumphant.


    Passionately written and mixed with artistic freedom, Paradise hopes the blood, sweat and tears that went into the making of this record stirs the listener and calls them to join in the movement of authenticity and true presence of mind as soldiers of the modern age.
