pMad - Fire (single)
Paul Dillon from Portumna, Co. Galway in Ireland is a solo artist professionally known as “pMad”. He is a singer and a songwriter who follows a path of introspection with a unique view of the world & what we are doing to ourselves and the planet. pMad's colorful mix of Gothic Rock, Indie and Post-Punk with a unique and interesting concept, his latest release comes through “Sisters”. The special thing is Paul in bands The Suicidal Dufflecoats to The Greeting & now pMad, records ‘Sisters’ in the middle of a pandemic and it is created in Ireland (self-released on Zedakube Records), in collaboration with Germany (Protonaut Studio) & Mexico (Elith Mastering Labs) without ever being in the same room together.
Those familiar with pMad's work already know how dark and intense it is. With the latest single Fire, taste of his new album I in Power, he takes both of these elements to the next level. Right from the start, there is a cloud of uneasiness flying over. The drums trying to evoke the sound of a heartbeat immediately draw you closer, right into the centre of it all.
You get the sense of urgency from this track, trying to wake us all up before the time runs out. Environmental cry for help? A warning? The message is underlined by the guitars, intensifying the overall impact.
"Hate has just beome the norm
All too late
Fire is rising"
