Venus Furs: “Paranoia”

by Roxane Labonté

Closed shutters, dark rooms, and solitary wanderings… with “Paranoia”, Montreal multi-instrumentalist Paul Kasner, aka Venus Furs, shares the darkness that confinement brings to souls already in torment. The condition is palpable – through the progression of anxiety-inducing chords, the walls close in. The shooting of the clip was completed a week before the pandemic struck, and it was edited as the scourge spread around the world. The initial significance of “Paranoia” blossomed. Note that Venus Furs will release its first album on July 10 under its own label, Silk Screaming Records.
