A Band Called Paul’s “SLOW TRAIN”… arriving at a platform near you in December
Dublin, December 10th 2020
It’s a new departure for A Band Called Paul as we boss us some bossanova - in an indie
way - on this new release “SLOW TRAIN”.
It’s somewhat of an indie homage to Henry Mancini.
“Indie Lounge”, if you will.
With a texture of sweeping strings, fluttering woodwind and soulful saxophone sitting atop a
swinging upright bass and loose bossanova drum groove, the retro feel of the track’s hook is
blended with a distinctly indie layer of chunky hand percussion and some ripping guitar.
“SLOW TRAIN” is available exclusively on Bandcamp from December 14th and on all
major digital/streaming platforms from December 28th.
ABOUT A BAND CALLED PAUL
Based in Dublin, Ireland, A Band Called Paul is the creation of former orchestral percussionist,
soundtrack composer and session musician Paul McDonnell. The band's music reflects the variety
and depth of Paul's musical career with deft lane changes between hard rock, Latin jazz, indie rock,
electronica and world music.
A Band Called Paul released their debut album, "Primero", in February 2019. They have released four
singles from the album to date:
- the Latin jazz "Hero Two" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CrOgzj3JBQ)
- the darkly electronic "Freefall" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIW450wY3AQ)
- the upbeat 60’s-influenced indie rock “In It For Money”
- the stadium-rock-with a-twist “Shimalay” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKgLd9sqf84)
“SLOW TRAIN” is the band’s first release beyond their debut album “Primero”.
The band's sound has been described as if Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The The and Beck were
to collaborate. That applies to about half of what they do.
