Soft Ivories and Beiges swim into vision as I take my mid-evening scroll through Instagram, immersed in these colours is none other than the group and harmony queens of our hearts, Paradisia. After completely clearing their Instagram prior to this in Solange levels of secrecy, it’s not only surprising to view the dreamy landscape of a photo, but also surprising to see the almost chameleon-like transformation. Striking it out on their own, after the decision to leave their label and management last year, it becomes clearer that this is no ‘girl group’, but three self-assured women who have control over their own image, music and sense of sensuality.
’I won't be quiet for anyone’ - is the first spoken line that seems to bring the instruments into a rallying action that is the song, ’History Made’. Created during the journey of trying to find would be producers who lined up with their creative vision, the group decided to embark on their own self-production that bought to us their first release in two years. The song is a crescendo of quiet confidence, that can only be achieved by artists truly conscious of their art. Anna, Kristy and Sophie-Rose want listeners—especially women, to know that life is about speaking up, as a line from the song utters. ‘there’s no history made in saying nothing.’
