Hey there! SoCal's garage rock band, Foxtide, just dropped their new Paradise EP. With some calm and confident vocals mixed with lyrics about self-doubt and internal fears, this EP is like a little bundle of deep introspection wrapped in a catchy package.

Get ready to feel some early 2000s rock vibes. These talented musicians blend in those nostalgic sounds while adding a modern, catchy pop twist. Having grown up in the SoCal DIY scene, they bring a fresh and youthful energy to their music. So grab your headphones and hit that stream button ASAP!

Starting with "What Good Is It," one of the EP's earlier singles, you're immediately transported to a nostalgic place and time. It sets the stage for the rest of the body of work in a really cool way.

With a strong dose of nostalgic guitar vibes, "Bumps and Bruises" crashes in like a wave of unpredictable excitement.

The band's frontman Elijah Gibbins-Croft said, "' Bumps and Bruises' is one of the first songs we wrote together. Reflecting the band's environment, the song has a surfy, loose, yet sharp sound. It's ultimately about keeping your inner high schooler alive and the struggles of change while getting out of being a teenager. What's a good story without your bumps and bruises?"

Next on the release is the EP's debut single, "Hold On." After that, you'll hear the EP's title track called "Paradise." This song is like having a personal conversation with yourself, debating which aspects of life deserve your attention and which ones you should let go of to maintain balance.

"Staring At The Wall" is like a trippy mashup of 2000s grunge and psychedelic vibes, capturing that feeling of dread we can all relate to.

To wrap things up, let's talk about "Running from Myself."

Gibbins-Croft said it is "about not liking yourself for the reasons other people don't like you." Foxtide is on a journey to perfection, constantly pushing themselves to improve. Their ultimate goal? Creating pure paradise. They may stumble along the way but never take themselves too seriously. With their new EP, Foxtide is growing up and discovering new horizons.
