Divina Paradiso is the creative outlet for Sam Kennedy.
Sam Kennedy lives in Frankston and makes Loner Pop in his Bedroom. He drinks Melbourne Bitter. He supports the Melbourne Demons. These are crucial indicators. Divina Paradiso is Broken, but Forever Loyal. Sad, but secretly Optimistic. Equal parts Boorish Bluster and Quiet Despair. Gentle Soul. Ruthless Arsehole. The Kid is Unpredictable.
These are 3.5 Sad Songs, and 1.5 Happy Songs. Two of them are Instrumentals. One of them was recorded on Ketamine, and is about a Professional Sportsman. They're all Strange. These songs sound a little like Brian Eno. Bits of David Bowie. The Human League. The Rolling Stones. Sunshine. Rain. Buses. Trains. Sex. Drugs. Football.
The Divine Paradise, this time around, is a Frankston Bedroom after a crushing defeat, several dozen Beers, and a Bump of Somethin Else.
Melancholy, but momentarily Invincible.
Sam Kennedy is Divina Paradiso.
Divina Paradiso is Honest.
