DARTZ Unleash Summer Anthem 'Paradise' + Video

DARTZ Unleash Summer Anthem 'Paradise' + Video

Chris Cudby / Thursday 25th January, 2024 9:58AM

Currently treating Australian fans to a barrage of shows, Pōneke's DARTZ get stuck into the greed-fuelled outrageousness of Aotearoa's property market in their video for 'Paradise'. In some ways flipping the sentiment of David Lee Roth's similarly titled 1988 hit, DARTZ's huge new anthem is a loving ode to summers in their homeland without ignoring any of the associated realities — slip-slop-slappin' their way out to the Bay Of Plenty to reclaim the beach.

Speaking of flipping, the DARTZ boys take the opportunity to market their latest business venture Paradise Realty, sharp-dressed in suits and open-neck shirts turning garbage into megabucks in the song's accompanying clip — directed by Oscar Keys and made with support from NZ On Air. If you haven't ordered a copy of their forthcoming second album Dangerous Day To Be A Cold One via Flying Nun Records, what are you waiting for? Hit play and catch them on the East Coast with Naarm punks Private Function in mid-February...

"We were driving through Mt Maunganui one day before a show, and out of nowhere Rollyz just said out loud ‘damn it’s a good place to be blonde’. That phrase stuck with us and the song just came naturally from there."
— Danz
