Paul Dillon, known by the name pMad, is a talented solo artist hailing from Portumna, Co. Galway, Ireland. With a musical career that spans over several years, Paul has been a part of several successful bands including The Suicidal Dufflecoats, Starve the Barber, and currently, The Greeting, as well as his solo project pMad. His latest release, the single “Down,” follows the successful launch of his debut album “Who Why Where What,” which was released worldwide on CD and as a digital download. Despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic, Paul was able to record the album in collaboration with Zedakube Recording in Ireland, Protonaut Studio in Germany, and Elith Mastering Labs in Mexico, without ever being in the same room together.
pMad’s latest single, “Down,” is a pulsating explosion of emotion, blending electrifying beats, fierce guitars, and brooding alternative gothic vibes. This heavy, dark, post-punk anthem is a cathartic journey through the devastating impact of abusive relationships on one’s identity and self-esteem. The lyrics paint a vivid picture of the emotional turmoil that arises when personal safety and self-worth are threatened, reminding us that until we confront these issues, the cycle of suffering will persist. However, with the power of self-reflection and a realization of life’s value, one can choose to break free from the cycle and reclaim their self-esteem and identity.
