PaulWetz / Misfits
Newly signed to hfn music, PaulWetz brings his singular, enchanting songwriting and production gifts to a new level for a new year. Hailing from the Black Forest areas of Southern Germany, Wetz has been honing his skills since first picking up a guitar aged 9. His Surrender EP from 2018 announced his arrival in style - catching the ear of various tastemakers and receiving strong support from Radio 1 and Triple J.
Three years later his skills as a storyteller and conjurer of pop hooks is even more assured. The new single ‘Misfits’ marries thoughtful lyrics with production chops that rival some of his key influences - Aha and Depeche Mode included. Misfits was written in his friend’s home studio - an electronic take on what started out as an indie rock track. Built around a low slung bass line and a synth horn melody, Paul’s affecting vocals sit perfectly as he mediates on self confidence and accepting yourself.
PaulWetz: Misfits is accompanied by a charming music video, premiered on Rockerilla.
