Part of the same scene which spawned Girl Band – who he recently supported on their Irish tour – Hanna’s songwriting calls to mind Elvis Costello at his lovesick, literate best, as well as the rickety genre-spanning of Ezra Furman.

His recent single ‘Underprotected’ merges a relentless krautrock beat with complex interlocking guitar lines, not unlike Wilco at their most airborne, with some cheeky “sha-la-la” backing vocals thrown in for good measure. Hanna describes the track as “an ode to self-doubt, a story of embracing worth, while mourning the loss of a sorrow which once defined you,” and his voice – draped in his proudly undisguised Dublin accent – commands the track.

It’s B-side ‘Chocolate and Salt’ shows off all aspects of his voice, veering from gentle Edwyn Collins croon to Tom Waits growl in the space of a sentence. Meanwhile, his unique turn of phrase – “the dusty rug of old world thinking has covered me too long” – mark him as a singular voice amongst his Dublin peers.
A prophetic tale-teller and uncannily perceptive pop talisman, Dublin’s Paddy Hanna is, for us, something of a sub-genre unto himself. A key exponent of Paddyhannaism, week by week, his talents become yet more apparent, not least during a string of dates across the country recently that have coalesced as some kind of Good Word of Irish music and testament to a burgeoning appreciation of an artist who emanates an air of resolution. – The Thin Air

“Blessed with a sharply defined, neatly uplifting chorus and some biting, Elvis Costello style lyrics it’s a neat introduction to a curious talent” – Clash magazine

“One of Ireland’s finest songwriters” – Totally Dublin

“One of Dublin’s most consistently awesome songwriters” – Hot Press

“Bewitching” – The Line Of Best Fit

“Wonderful” – GoldFlakePaint
