Newcastle four-piece Club Paradise has carved out a place for themselves in the music world with their 80s-tinged pop-rock sound. With over 150k streams to their name and support from BBC Introducing, Radio X, and Clash, the band is set to take over the airwaves and captivate fans worldwide. After all, after a year inside, their brand of exuberance is just what the soul needs.
That energy is palpable in their new single and video “Don’t Call Me Over”, premiering right here, right now.
While the track has been a long-time live favorite, fans can now hear the track in all its recorded glory. The band’s signature 80s pop hooks and buoyant energy shine while the lyrics tell the tale of feeling frustrated in a relationship.
Frontman Ryan Young explained, “I think at the time we wrote it, it’s kind of about not being made a mug of, or being made a mug of and not being entirely sure that’s what’s happening to you, until you have the chance to reflect or see it for yourself. I remember sitting down with this one lyrically and it just fell down onto the page, especially the lyric “I never had your heart, but you can take my car, I don’t think that’s how this should be.” It was supposed to be pretty angry at the time but now I just feel like it’s a bit of a cheeky way to call someone out, a bit smug.”
He added, “We just have an absolute blast playing this one live. It’s maybe not as profound as some of our other tracks like ‘Do You Feel the Same?’ or ‘Teenagers’ but it’s proper groovy and it really kicks off at gigs. I remember when we first put this down as a demo ages ago and it just hasn’t changed at all – I think that speaks volumes too, having no rewrites.”
