Welcome to the alternative universe of The Paleo Paranoids. The fresh underground duo based in Bremen, Germany is pleased to present you their third album “Everything’s Fine Here”.



The Paleo Paranoids – Björn Göran Detjen and Thomas Schaefer – are THE two-man alternative band from Bremen, Germany. They mix their basic instruments of several basses, electric piano, guitars, drums, percussion and multi-layered vocals together to create an exciting music menu of Swing Jazz, Rock, Indie and sound experiments.

Their energetic albums that have been released so far are an absolute insider tip for music-loving listeners who are looking for weird, rhythmic underground music beyond the unbearable shallowness of the mainstream. With the third album “Everything’s Fine Here” the two paranoids even conquer danceable terrain without losing sight of the congenial joy of playing and musical intelligence of the two previous albums “Cargo” and “Rumspringa”.
