Lulu And Mavis Bacon Come Together To Form The Paradise Gym: Listen To “Matenrou”

Singer/songwriter Lulu and Trekkie-Trax-associate Mavis Bacon have come together to form a new group called The Paradise Gym. They already released an EP a couple months back, but now comes the sweet “Matenrou,” a song highlighting all the strengths of this project. Similar to her work with Mikeneko Homeless late last year, The Paradise Gym puts the focus on her voice, and plays up intimacy and closeness over floor-filling nuttiness. Mavis Bacon, fittingly, provides a piano-accented backdrop that lets Lulu shine. She delivers words that sound slightly defeated and melancholy, at times backing vocals tripping into her. Listen above.
