Video Premiere: Paddy Hanna - Camaraderie
Dublin singer-songwriter unveils video for confessional new track Camaraderie
Flip-side to recent 45 'Austria', the cut finds the singer in donwbeat confessional mode.
Matching a Dylan-esque stream of consciousness lyric with delicately arranged alt. pop a la Sufjan Stevens, the track is a plaintive study of depression.
The singer explains, 'Last summer I was crippled with depression, to the point where I was physically and mentally too sick to stand. I spent many weeks alone in my cottage growing ever more paranoid of the outside world and the joyful cheers of the summer crowd. The song concerns losing touch with how it feels to be human in a tourist town'.
Matched by the visuals which show the singer alone in a glided cage, a well furnished apartment by the sea, both sides of the single serve notice of Hanna's burgeoning talent.
