FRESH: ‘Love In A Wasteland’ – Paul Babe

Paul Babe releases “Love In A Wasteland”

Brooklyn based artist Seth Evans has just set out on his music career under the name of ‘Paul Babe’. He released his first single, “Lasso”, earlier in 2020 and now he’s back with the follow up, the amazing “Love In A Wasteland”, which is both totally full of atmosphere and intrigue and is described as a ‘typical hopeful alien invasion love story song’! Both songs with feature on ‘Paul Babe’s debut album due to come in the Spring of 2021 and judging from what we’ve been offered so far, this is going to be a 21st century masterpiece.

Paul Babe says of the track: “Though the song chronicles the difficult but destined path of lovers caught in a post-apocalyptic, alien-ravaged dystopia (and though I wrote it quite some time ago) it seems oddly relative today. Forgive the exhaustive cliche but it is about finding a light in the dark (Jan 20th anyone?) or at the end of the tunnel, or however you choose your old adages”.

Paul Babe is based in Brooklyn but come from the land of 10k lakes (suburbs of Minneapolis to be precise) where he grew up down the road from Paisley Park. This was the recording studio and eventual home of his hero, Prince, so his music naturally is injected with his influence. Also, you might say it is reminiscent of the more ethereal side of Bon Iver except with a slightly less shrill falsetto. There’s plenty of drama in “Love In A Wasteland”, from the rocky guitars to the pulsing soundtrack and Paul’s vocal enhancements taking music to another level and another dimension!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
