In the wake of recent track ‘Silver Rabbit’ comes Paul Smith’s brand new single ‘Around and Around’.
While ‘Silver Rabbit’s’ tense power-pop gave the Grunge era a fresh lick of paint, ‘Around and Around’ takes a look at the world and isn’t particularly enamoured with what it sees, detailing the futile merry-go-round of political spin.
Talking about the new single, Smith comments, “I wanted to create a seemingly breezy pop song that contains buried feelings of discomfort and unease. I began by using certain autobiographical details, but then I tried to make it more of a cryptic short story with Brexit Britain as the backdrop.”
At the end of October, live dates kick off with an intimate hometown album launch show in Stockton. A month later, the album will be brought to life with full band performances, with support coming from One Little Indian’s former Mercury Prize nominee Kathryn Williams.
