The Paranoyds announce debut album ‘Carnage Bargain’
Today LA newcomers The Paranoyds have announced their debut album, ‘Carnage Bargain’ for September 13th release on Suicide Squeeze and have shared a new track.
‘Carnage Bargain’ sees the four-piece deliver a raucous blend of garage rock grit, new wave swagger, classic horror film soundtrack campiness, and a myriad of other left-of-center influences. The record’s lead single “Girlfriend Degree” is online now - a mid-tempo stomper of clap-along beats, fuzz guitar leads, and call-to-arms vocals that makes the band’s mission to reject the status quo clear. The accompanying video is by Ambar Navarro (Cuco, Soccer Mommy, Stef Chura).

"Think a 60s girl group that flipped off Phil Spector and embraced horror soundtrack synths." - Noisey
