Following early radio buzz for his previous singles earlier this year, genre-mashing London singer-songwriter Paul Lynch is back today with a brand new song – the vibrant and infectious Little Man. Combining indie-pop melodies with world music grooves and folky optimism, the summery new track is available on all streaming platforms now. Listen here
“This song was heavily inspired by Paul Simon’s Graceland album of course, but also from African music such as Amadou & Mariam, Salif Keita, Richard Bona and many more,” explains Lynch on the new single.
“The message is that bad things will happen, but to not worry about it and be thankful for all of the good things that are happening in your life. The song’s genesis was in my own insecurities and me working on ways to embrace them and become more confident. Also, I think that this is embodied by the fact that I have always been quite small in stature…hence Little Man!”
Paul Lynch draws on a rich variety of influences to craft timeless music that although nominally classifiable as indie-folk, incorporates elements of world music, classic pop and psychedelic rock and is as unpredictable and inventive as it is impressively catchy. With his versatile, delicate voice delivering his witty and honest lyrics, his varied songwriting comes to life on both record and stage, where he is a dramatic performer. Returning home rejuvenated from travels around Mexico and France last year and inspired by the music heard on his journey, Lynch is releasing a string of new singles throughout 2019.
