Paragon Cause is an enigmatic, indie-electronica band based in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, with a penchant for making music that is enigmatic, darkly mysterious, but also wondrously compelling.
Drop Me In, the first single off the EP - Lies Between Us, takes the listener on both a musical and lyrical journey, in this case of someone coming back from the brink of psychological oblivion. The song’s composition becomes increasingly upbeat in tone as the emotional tenor of the lyrics also turns the corner to a more positive outcome.
“It’s a song I wrote when some friends were going through a depression and the idea was to say there are people around you that can help” said Michelle. “I’m saying drop me into the situation, I can help, I have some understanding from my own struggles’ It’s about helping pull them through this and how that person that you knew went away for a while but now you can see them coming back. And that’s when the song itself transitions to a happier sound.”
The EP, and the the forthcoming album, were produced by one of their musical heroes - Sune Rose Wagner of Danish pop/alternative sensations, The Ravonettes. And it happened in the craziest way. Jay sent Wagner a tweet mentioning he would love to work with him on their next project. He never imagined Wagner would actually reply – but he did, and the two soon began a correspondence which led to Wagner travelling up from New York City to Ottawa to work alongside Paragon Cause.
Lyrics for Drop Me In by Michelle Opthof
Drop Me in (I can go anywhere) Drop Me In (I can pull too) Don’t be scared (I was scared once) Don’t be scared (You didn’t care once too) Drop me in (I was there once) Drop Me In (I was scared Once) Drop Me In (You didn’t care once too)
Somethings not right I can feel it Somethings not right You can feel it too I know your coming back I know your coming back to me I know your coming back
Dont be scared (I was scared once) Don’t be Scared (You didn’t care once too) Drop Me In Cause I want to
