Paris Carney | It’s Always the Quiet Ones

February 23, 2014 at 2:27 am Leave a comment

Paris Carney just posted this elegant track called “It’s Always the Quiet Ones”, a song written and recorded in her Los Angeles apartment. It balances beautifully between the eclectic electronic world and melodic pop. (Think of a more pop-influenced Esthero, Bell, and Everything But the Girl.) And she makes the balance seem pretty easy. It’s a song a number of listeners can relate to, about identity, defying expectations and aiming for the things you want. It also feels like a sweetly-sung missive about what it’s like in the music industry. What better way to express a kiss-off than to create a gem of a single? There’s some exquisitely-written verses, with delicious rhymes, pleasurable to tongue, that fit the song’s lilting style with grace: “Flips and turns, upside down / I hope you brought your floor-length gown / Nevermind, take it off and try this on.” The song was mixed by Jesse String. Not sure who came up with the idea to begin with that echoed a capella and blend it right into that wicked opening beat, but they should be commended. It’s top shelf. I’m a fan of the little details too, like the glitches, the soulfulness of the lead vocals, and the cooing backing samples. You can follow Paris Carney at facebook and twitter.
