Paris Paloma continues to explore resilience with new single “drywall.” Not only does the track build on the relatable theme from recent Billboard-charting anthem “labour” it does on its follow up, “as good a reason.”
This rising UK singer-songwriter is continuing to use her platform as an ethereal, haunting voice of femininity through poignant lyrics not unlike the greats of this genre. It won’t be much longer until the world recognizes the talent that is Paris Paloma. This single follows Paloma’s sold out tour dates in UK and the EU, with her debut album and further touring on the horizon in early 2024. With over 5300 pre-saves for “as good a reason,” Paris Paloma’s growing fanbase are heavily invested in her music – and her message.
See the full music video below:
Instrumentally and compositionally deceptively gentle, the song builds from an acoustic guitar and Paris’s vocals pour out simple, poetic words that are a straight punch to the gut:
“he’s punching walls again, cohesive arguments evade him.”
Each word is stated nonchalantly, as if it was no different from breathing. Layered within the track, we are unfolded into a realm of chaos, destructive expression of emotion, and strings of un-expressed rage oh so neatly tied into a lyrical masterpiece. This song isn’t just about a toxic relationship. It’s a message on moments where many women are told to make their feelings and expressions smaller. The same expression from a man is deemed more acceptable and palpable.
The instrumentals build to suit the mood and the tone, to an anthemic refrain with synths and horns rounding out an intense moment with the lyric “he has nothing” before fading out of existence, message echoing within our minds…
