A Band Called Paul

LATEST RELEASE (November 2021):

No strings attached.

Or brass. Or woodwind.

Not even a flugelhorn.


Over 2021 we experimented with lounge music, collaborated with an American rapper, JoeliD, twice and produced a track for another artist, Ireland's Rhesus Freak.


Now we make a welcome return to our indie rock roots with a slice of post-punk, new wave fun called "Inside Out".

Based in Dublin, 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, electronica and world music.


A Band Called Paul released their debut album, "Primero", in February 2019. They have released five singles 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 60s-infused indie pop “In It For Money” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA4Vyu_Nv6s), the stadium-rock-with-a-twist "Shimalay" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKgLd9sqf84) and the homage to Henry Mancini and 1950's lounge music "Slow Train" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0elyPLWPKE).


The band's sound has been described as if Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, The The and Beck were to collaborate. But that only covers about 50% of what they do.
