Australian Ghost Story: The Paradise Motel
Ten years ago, The Paradise Motel left the comfort of Melbourne for London and the promise of greatness, before almost immediately disbanding. An Australian ghost story indeed.
Dealing with the disappearance of Azaria Chamberlain (thirty years ago this year), this album is something only The Paradise Motel could pull off. Drawing from the Motel’s well-stocked arsenal of haunting melodies and stunningly eerie arrangements, these songs are executed with the confidence and skill of a band who, after all these years, know what they do well – something impressive and utterly unique. It is great to have this local treasure back.
