'Paranoia' by the US band 'Anna Bee' is a solid and dark synth pop song in the mid tempo range. The vocals are crystal clear, expressive and epic in places. Very nice are also the subtle sound effects, like the soft phone ringing in the background when the lyric asks: "Did you hear the phone ring?".
Sound-wise, everything is mixed perfectly and the number of tracks has a perfect balance in my opinion. There is enough variety, i.e. the ear does not get bored. But the song is also not too complex, so that you have an easy start and are not acoustically overchallenged. By the way, 'Paranoia' is perfect for your next Halloween playlist.

Anna Bee about 'Paranoia'
Anna Bee, New York Based and California raised, vocalist, songwriter, and producer releases her edgy single, “Paranoia,” on October 28, on all platforms. This is her fourth single release, and second self produced track.
“Paranoia” is a departure from Anna’s first two releases which showcase her poetic songwriting, and heartfelt vocals, taking a more intense, electronic approach to her production. In “Paranoia,” she calls on the stories we tell ourselves in our darkest moments, saying “Start to believe the lies my devil weaves.” This moody bass track draws on her own experiences of paranoia and insomnia as well as seeing the torment of a close family member dealing with Schizo-affective disorder. This project touches on the agonizing feeling we all face in times of need, when we are trapped within our own minds, and how tragically that can manifest itself in the context of severe mental illness. Anna Bee’s powerful vocals on top of her own production bring you to the brink in this timely Halloween release.
