Watch: Paragon Cause Air New Single/Video "Two To Play"

Toronto indie rock/post punk/dance punk duo Paragon Cause (aka Jay Bonaparte and Michelle Opthof) have aired the video for their new single "Two To Play".

The song is taken from their recent album 'Autopilot', which came out this month (August 13) via Analogue Trash. Get your copy here.

From the duo: "Two to Play was the first song we recorded for the Autopilot sessions with Sune Rose Wagner (The Raveonettes). At first, we didn’t like it and we almost deleted it, and now it’s one of our favorite songs on the album. We I wanted a dreamy shoegaze, powerful kind of song, and that’s what we ended up with. The emotion of the music was critical, we wanted the intro to be very simple and classic sounding, purposely a bit raw. Then, as the character in the song comes to an epiphany, the music widens and opens up. We are proud we were able to capture that. Ironically, the song is about doing things for yourself and not allowing others to influence your decisions. But at the same time, it felt like a game a person can play with themselves. So we asked ourselves, who plays the game? That brought us to the idea of creating a video game, but in a modern retro futuristic 8bit Halifax, Canada. Again the idea of time came into play. We connected with an animator, Luigi Salas and pitched our story. A women lost in a crowd of brainwashed followers. The demon preacher is actually, the ‘ghost’ on the cover over the Autopilot album. The women attempts to escape the demon preacher who never catches her but, regardless, she can not escape her demons and was part of the game. We also wanted to write a bit of a love letter to the late 90’s/early 2000’s Halifax Music Scene. We worked hard to put a lot of Easter Eggs in there. Halifax inspired us to be musicians and the nod is a bit of a thank you."
