|Omschrijving||Originating in Berkshire and fronted by main
songwriter Danny Sorrell, The Paradox Twin are a
progressive rock trio who make 2018 their own with
their debut album “The Importance of Mr Bedlam.
The album has a very interesting concept while the
music combines classic rock and prog elements with
a contemporary uplifting feel. The Importance of Mr
Bedlam was produced by John Mitchell, and features
guest spots from both John Mitchell and Kim
Seviour. The music is definitely in the vein of
alternative progressive rock, and you may hear some
Porcupine Tree and other such influences. Like that
genre, you’ll hear some 90s sounds that will be

steel in the guitars, as the band instead seems to
prefer to aim for musical space and atmosphere.
You’ll hear plenty of beautiful keys and electronic
accents too, bringing a completeness to the sound.
This whole album feels like a dream, and some of
the best moments are the points where almost
nothing is happening. The band manages their sound

overdrive to rock out when the timing is
appropriate. The album is quite poetic and focused
