26/08/2016 - 26/08/2016 Paul Dempsey

Paul Dempsey releases his eclectic yet incisive second solo album, ‘Strange Loop’. Co-produced by Paul Dempsey and Tom Schick (Wilco, Ryan Adams) at Wilco’s The Loft Studio in Chicago, ‘Strange Loop’ features the tracks ‘Morningless’ and ‘The True Sea’ and is already attracting a slew of incredible reviews. Australia will be able to hear tracks from ‘Strange Loop’ live as Paul announces a national tour with his band taking in all major metro Australian cities and select regional centres. . Main opening act for Paul on this tour will be Melbourne songstress Olympia who recently released her debut album ‘Self Talk’ to much critical acclaim. Arriving seven years after the Something for Kate front man’s acclaimed solo debut, 2009’s top five ARIA charts success ‘Everything Is True’, ‘Strange Loop’ –is freewheeling in form but precisely executed; it’s a record that knows what it wants to say, what it needs to be – 11 tracks that enclose surreptitious dry wit, the irregularity of the everyday, and the pathos of longing in a mix of magic hour melodies, striking instrumentation, and tenderly charged vocals.
