Indie Midlands Review of Save Me

Indie Midlands Review of Save Me

Musically ‘Save Me’ reminds me of 80’s acts like the late Kirsty Maccoll and to a degree Voice Of The Beehive. All be it with a fuzzier guitar sound. The vocals are pure and suit the song well. Lyrically it’s nice when a song has a genuine message – “Words for me fall on deaf ears when I’m miles ahead, Let me take you back. History repeats itself.” sings vocalist Michelle Opthof. “You cannot save them all” she reflects on the fact you need to sometimes accept you can’t do everything and no matter how hard you try some people just can’t be saved.

Ottawa-based indie-rock/electronic duo Paragon Cause has a new EP on the way titled Lies Between Us, due September 13. From that set, the group recently released the single "Save Me." It, like much of the band's recent studio work, was produced by Sune Rose Wagner of the long-running Danish rock group The Raveonettes. Vocalist/keyboardist Michelle Opthof commented on the politically-charged track, which the band had set out to write as a punk song:

Ottawa’s indie-electronica duo, Paragon Cause, recently released a dark and mysterious video for their latest single “Save Me.” The excellent video is full of vivid colours and overlays, while switching between the band jamming out the song and the story of a woman who appears to be struggling in a relationship with her partner and children…all wearing rather creepy masks.

Save Me by Paragon Cause based out of Ottawa, Canada feels at once fresh and yet comfortable. Not comfortable as chill but as in old friends comfortable. Their sound is big, lush and passionate but classic too with 80's and 90's synth tones.

Another Friday, another slew of great new music to fire up your amygdala. I think my inbox was so backed up, I was reading emails from when it was still cold outside. Yep, emails as far back as May…
The common thread among the artists featured today is that their actual voices are distinct, not their platforms or backgrounds, though those come into play too. The four singers featured here, I could listen to all day long. Perhaps you’ll agree.
