After an impressive debut release, indie supergroup States return with their beautiful and lush second installment - Paradigm. Delving into more experimental territory, Paradigm is a lesson in dynamics — rich atmospherics are grounded by propulsive rhythms, delicate layers are juxtaposed by driving guitars, and heady lyrics are masterfully delivered by an arresting voice. With foundational roots in such beloved bands (Copeland, Lydia), expectations have always been high for States. Paradigm not only secures the bands independence as a stand alone force, it also serves as a statement of what’s to come. THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. ALL ORDERS WILL SHIP THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 24TH. ALL ORDERS COME WITH AN INSTANT DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OF “PARADIGM.”
