A classic indie album - 'Tea and Medals' by The Insufferable Paul Scott

This album is a warm and rich journey accompanied by retro and old school qualities. Giving us a countdown at the opening track, listeners can quickly perceive the Indie vibe from songs. Radiohead characteristics align well with electronic accents, generating unique sounds that bring a colourful musical spectrum out of this album. With such a consistent tone distributed throughout all the tracks, we are also introduced to electric, acoustic guitars and keys that are perfectly mixed with Paul's edgy and outstanding vocals and harmonies. Unexpected and delightfully surprising chord progressions and variations in rhythmic patterns cues curiosity and heighten the listener's interest in the composition of each of the tracks. Some songs have atmospheric or minimalistic musical elements and this approach makes the album timeless. Diving into the depths with addictive melodies sustained echoes and reverbs, warm, emotion-inducing writing, and outstanding musical style can be experienced throughout the whole album. This album is an exemplary lesson in musical master-crafting and is an unforgettable trip everyone should definitely experience.

About The Insufferable Paul Scott:

"Paul Scott began his career in music, writing and playing bass in angular NZ group Pop Mechanix. Despite court cases, a revolving cast of singers and multiple record labels, their single ‘Jumping out a Window’ became a staple of New Zealand pop culture. Relocating to Australia Paul formed Montana with Ken Stewart (Mr Blonde), Michelle Margherita and Steve Melville. Their first release featured 'Koolest Band' which received national airplay and high rotation on JJJ. A brief tour of the USA and a performance at SXSW led to 'Koolest Band' being included in the Hollywood movie 'You Drive Me Crazy'. The subsequent album ‘Bubblegum Love’ was released in Australia, Spain, France and the USA. Scott has since plied bass for various Australian acts, playing everywhere from community halls and malls in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to the Sydney Opera House. More recently Scott has released ‘Surrender to Robots’ also under his ‘Insufferable’ moniker which found a wide response and positive reviews which led to the creation of the new album Tea and Medals."
