On their debut album, Plateau Below flow like a river: serene yet strong, their sound recalls the passage of water. Bright, layered vocal melodies float and shimmer over rippling guitars. Lyrically, the theme of a flowing river is evoked throughout to wonder on the passage of time. On Still Paradise, we hear a voice at odds with a river that changes, ceaselessly. True to this theme, the Bloomington, Indiana quartet recorded Still Paradise like the traditional rock it echoes: all of the bass, drums, and rhythm guitars were recorded in live takes. The result is a classic, live sound that answers the lyrical plea for nostalgia and constancy. The album culminates in the massive, overflowing Twiggy, which showers soulful horns and doo-woppy harmonies in a plea to arrest the changing of a pure soul. Plateau Below have been together for barely over a year, and have already delivered this beautiful album. Here’s to hoping some things never change.

Track Name: Clearhead Real
I'm feeling nervous and I can't shake it out of my head
I hate dealing with anything anymore
I'm feeling tired and I'm not getting out of my bed
I may just melt here and never talk again

I'm having trouble thinking of a reason to be
I hate dealing with everything anymore
This hope is featherless and he is cawing at me
He tried to sing more but the spring cut off his beak

I had a clear head in a clear sky
But something's come and flown in my eye
I had two strong hands in the late fall
But winter came and froze them both off
