Deerhoof's new album, La Isla Bonita, comes out Nov. 4.

"Paradise Girls" is bright and upbeat, defined by fluttery percussion and syncopated guitar lines. The song was inspired by the band's long roster of female heroes, including 'Joan Jett, Janet Jackson, [and] Kim Gordon.' For more on La Isla Bonita, visit the band's website.
