The Paranoias have been tearing up the West Coast for a few years now mixing Latin ska fusion, R&B, reggae, soul, jazz, punk and hints of electronic proving they’re one of the most innovative bands in the LA scene right now.
The Paranoias have quickly become one of the top bands in the L.A. ska/punk scene by virtue of their live performances at the annual SkaWars festival and performances at ska concerts around the city, including the Levitt Pavilion at McArthur Park and even sharing the stage with Celso Piña at The Troubadour and Inspector at The Union.
Singer Ralf Velazquez says:
“Felicity 2” has been in our Catalog for years now, but it never felt finished; whether it be the lyrics, melody or idea as a whole. I struggled a lot on whether it should be Spanish or english, i went with both. As days, months, years went by, the song kept building. We never thought we’d have horns on this, but it was the last piece of the puzzle we were trying to make.
As for the video, Jazmin Aguilar came to us pre pandemic and suggested we should make a video together. But it wasn’t for this song. I honestly cant remember what song i was thinking for a video at the time, but, pandemic happened and things got shut down. Earlier this year, i hit up Jazmin and sent her the song. She said “Lets Do it!”. We cant take any credit for the video, her and her team did everything we could ever hope for.
