Wintersleep's Paul Murphy Unveils New Album as POSTDATA
Watch a video for the title track from 'Twin Flames'
Published Nov 20, 2020Once again, Wintersleep's Paul Murphy is branching out as POSTDATA. Today the Halifax-based songwriter has announced he will release Twin Flames on March 5 via Paper Bag Records. Right now, though, you can watch a video for the album's title track.
Twin Flames follows 2018's Let's Be Wilderness, and the upcoming record is described as POSTDATA's most most intimate and timeless record yet. As a press release explains, "It's a bright, compassionate text of major-key romanticism, which Murphy describes as 'inward-looking and focused on creating and surrounding itself in hope and warmth.'"
Down below, you can get a taste of that by watching the video for "Twin Flames." In a statement, Murphy had the following to say of the song:
This was initially an instrumental track. I think that's all I was going for at first. Ali suggested slowing it down and maybe trying to do some spoken word over top.. I worked on it that night and made some headway. I took a couple days to really work out the melody and structure of the lyric/song within it. Matt has a bit of a jazz background so we felt something free form on the drums would be cool.. his performance is the glue of the track for me.. really brings it all together..
