Good things take time...

Recorded under the watchful eyes of Jackson Hobbs (who, you may recall, helmed the recording process for their last album, Vipassana) and Steven Huf and skilfully mastered by Shelley Steffens of Chicago Mastering Services the tail end of 2012, we’re all pretty confident it’s been worth the wait.

Somewhat of a shift away from the ominous undertones of Vipassana, Paradise Beach employs what some may view is a “full-bodied” sound. The use of layered guitar parts and harmonies, ethereal moments such as “Black Ice” and “When The Dolls Woke” blend together on the release with pop-skewed cacophonies including single “Paradise Beach” and the track “Magdalene Brothers.”

Some may tout it as “left-of-centre” in terms of a Wilberforces release – others may cite it being a logical progression when charting the history of the band’s musical output. What will no doubt be unanimous is that it’s another incredibly strong release from a New Zealand band still hitting their stride.
