Paper Idol is a one-man project creating delusional pop. Castles – his latest single is a dancy, summery single coming from his recent EP Mania Days.
“Castles is the final chapter in the story – Paper’s mania wears off and he crashes back down to reality. The song is about my experience moving to LA to make music. I had these huge expectations for success, often fuelled by people in the industry, and thought it would require little time or effort to reach that success. Castles is about leaving fairy tales behind and realising that you need to work hard and stay determined to reach your goals”
Setting out to create a musical antidote for a generation bombarded by reality and desperate for an escape, Paper Idol’s formula is evidently something that we all need. So far Paper Idol received big support from BBC Radio 1 and KEXP and we believe that the big success he’s craving will come very soon.
