Bird of Paradise follows a stirring appearance on 2015's Correspondant Compilation 03 (CORR 002LP) with "Baal," a simultaneously mournful and driving track laden with bipolar melodies, reverbed drums, and an almost liquid bassline. "And the Half Light" manages the uncanny trick of being at once tear-jerking and eminently danceable. "Brothel Drummer," with which Man Power first introduced Bird of Paradise to Correspondant founder Jennifer Cardini, makes use of a generous helping of new wave pathos. Lauer's remix of "Baal" recalls an electronic pop find from 1986, with a sense of playful lightness that retains the pull on the listener's heartstrings.
