New Music: Paradisia - Silent Lover

Collectively Sophie-Rose, Anna and Kristy have found their way onto Breaking More Waves through a number of projects over the years, from Sophie’s solo output, together as part of The Night VI and Kristy’s individual effort called Silk Cinema. More recently they grabbed my attention again using the name Paradisia, with a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s Dancing In The Dark, one of those rare reworks that manages to transport the song and the listener to a totally different, dare I say it, improved place.

So with reintroductions out of the way, now we get to hear something new from the trio. Sadly Silent Lover isn’t a cover of the Boney M groovy disco classic, but that’s OK, because instead there’s a beguiling piece of timeless folk pop to listen to. Full of serene maturity and depth the song tells the tale of an experience of being swept away by someone after just a very short experience.

Paradisia recently performed their first live gig at The Waiting Room in London, which was a sell-out. More dates are to follow.
