Suicide Squeeze, have signed Los Angeles band The Paranoyds. The quartet will will release a 7-inch this summer. “Hungry Sam” / “Trade Our Sins” will be out on July 12th, A-Side and its incredible music video is out now. The Paranoyds play April 19th in LA tomorrow, and embark on a West Coast tour with Tacocat. Ahead of the release and tour, the band have shared a video for “Hungry Sam.” Over the past couple of years, the band have played shows with DIIV, Albert Hammond Jr., Sunflower Bean, and BRONCHO.
The Paranoyds began with Laila Hashemi (keyboardist-vocals) and Lexi Funston (guitars/vocals) whose friendship carried from preschool days to the halls of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. Ditching the playground for the practice space in high school, they caught up with Staz Lindes (bass/vocals) and welcomed David Ruiz (drums, vocals) in 2015. The Paranoyds’ mission to craft songs with the gritty spunk and dark playfulness of a cult-classic splatter film is shared equally. Their self-described “sister vocal act” shares the snarling, over-it-but-totally-into-it vocals throughout their songs, moving from dirty surf-pop guitar jams to power-packed garage rock.
