Early Praise for Sebastian Paul:
“burning a path all his own with a sound that is happily unfamiliar, unique, and entirely infectious” – Ones To Watch
“there’s no doubt in my mind that he has what it takes to take this thing as far as he wants it to go” – Lyrical Lemonade
“a distinct sound that’s immediately recognizable.. In addition to the irresistible production, his vocals have an impressive range” – This Song is Sick
“elements of hip-hop, electronic and alternative…warped synths building the suspense of the piece before the industrial sounding bass intensifies alongside the emotive falsetto sounds that become entranced in your head” – Acid Stag
Delivering emotive, layered vocals over hip hop beats, nostalgia-inducing synths, and industrial bass with an innovative, pop-minded approach, “the entire track is describing a single fleeting moment, in which impulsiveness reigns over one’s better judgement,” Sebastian Paul explains of “INDULGE,” with the new BRUM-directed music video encapsulating the inner dialogue of desire, struggle, restlessness and release, set to a dark yet colorful backdrop of warehouses, alleyways and phone booths.
The 5-track BOY OH BOY EP focuses on adolescence, and ultimately the transition from boy to man. “Each track looks to serve as a snapshot into this transitional phase of life, a set of experiences, and lessons,” Sebastian Paul explains. “I’m trying to place the listener right in the center of these moments.” In doing so, BOY OH BOY effortlessly shifts between glee, sorrow, aggression and regret, with his strong sonic identity remaining constant throughout.
While currently based between Los Angeles and Colorado, Sebastian Paul claims no specific city of origin. Raised in a military family, where migration is far more commonplace than settling, he was forced to move throughout the entirety of his youth. Sebastian views this experience as a driving factor behind his music – “Moving like that, you meet every kind of person. It forces you to become well-rounded, and you’re exposed to many more experiences than most people are afforded.”
