PaulWetz is back with Hypnotize Me - another bewitching pop gem filled with drama, attitude and emotion - and never without his signature ear for pop hooks. Wetz’s voice remains a joy - gentle yet edgy, while the thick, rounded kick and bass pounds us into a gentle submission. Out now!
"I wrote the song in a painting studio where I made lots of music the past two years and had a small room with my instruments. In the beginning of the pandemic I felt that on top of living a weird life already, it alienated me even more from my surroundings, my sisters live abroad and I missed them.
The track probably has the hardest hitting kickdrum I ever used, because I felt so numb that day that I wished for something to remind me that I am alive. It’s a song for everyone who feels alienated from the outside world and searches for refuge in music" Paul says.
