Toronto “cyborg-punk” artist Lee Paradise (Daniel Lee) has returned this week with another track from his upcoming album Lee Paradise & Co. The new single Not Practical features guest vocalist Victoria Cheong of Toronto experimental electronic outfit New Chance.
The upcoming record will also include contributions for Carlyn Bezic (Jane Inc.), Jonathan Pappo (Scott Hardware, No Frills, Ducks Ltd), Scott Hardware, Isla Craig, Jay Anderson, Charise Aragoza & Lukas Cheung (Mother Tongues) and Daniel Woodhead (Moon King).
Not Practical is another splendid example of this direction finding Lee tapping into some of his most synth-pop adjacent work to date, buoyed by Cheong‘s stunning vocals which are laced throughout. Echoed sounds whizz and whip around at the beginning of the track before clicking into chunky percussion, sci-fi synth and programmed beats flanked by repeated calls of “my love is unpractical”.
Listen to the new single in the embed below, and keep it locked to his socials for more leading up to the album release. Lee Paradise & Co. drops on October 28th via Telephone Explosion Records.
