Antonio Paul: “West Coast Kids”

I was trying to pin down the sound of Australian teenage duo Antonio Paul while listening to their three-track Treasures EP. A punk-rock cousin of Matt And Kim? No, that’s not quite right. Vampire Weekend meets The Kooks? Close.

At any rate, the duo earnestly combine angular guitar riffs with samples and drums to create a sound that’s unique and has some delightfully rough edges. Both members of Antonio Paul (Marc and Michael) are the ripe-old age of 19, and recorded Treasures on their own. With “West Coast Kids”, the wonderful guitar jangle and teenage angst are in full effect. It’s a solid dose of indie pop, and it’s worth checking out their EP. Stream “West Coast Kids” and download “City Dreams” from Antonio Paul below!
