Description

Paul Draper, former Mansun frontman, releases his second EP for Kscope - EP Two Following his first new music in twelve years (this summer's 'EP ONE'), Paul Draper announces the release of a second four track EP of new material. Paul Draper was the frontman, main songwriter and producer of Mansun - one of the most iconic bands of the '90s. The band's debut album 'Attack of the Grey Lantern' entered the UK chart at No 1. The band split in 2003 while recording their fourth LP (partially released on 2004's Kleptomania). Released in June earlier this year, 'EP One', was supported by industry gatekeepers happy to see Mansun's frontman make a return to the scene, including a radio premiere by Steve Lamaq, receiving plays on Chris Hawkins's 6 Music show and playlisted by BBC 6 Music, playlisted by Radio X, Q Magazine's Track of the Day, NME Track of the Week and a feature from The Line of Best Fit. 'EP Two' is backed by radio servicing from Caroline International. The first track from 'EP Two', "Friends Make The Worst Enemies", is a knock-out punch of a track; five minutes of relentless chasmic melody and melancholy - an immediate reminder of why Paul's songs were rarely far from the FM dial during his former band Mansun's supernova career, co-written and featuring The Anchoress following their collaboration successes on 'EP One' and Catherine's solo album 'Confessions of a Romance Novelist'. The following tracks: "Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid", is a spacious ballad recorded on guitar and piano; "Don't You Wait, It Might Never Come" is a ramped up, surging rock'n'roll song; and the last track is a bare bones acoustic version of "Friends Make The Worst Enemies". 'EP One' and 'EP Two' are part of the build up to Paul's debut solo album due for release in Spring 2017. Kscope will be releasing 'EP Two' as a CD Digipack on 25th November. Praise for EP One: "A sprightly, electro-infused solo single" NME, Tracks of the Week "...well worth a listen." «««« The Sun "...a significant step back into the spotlight from a generally underappreciated talent." Prog Magazine "...an unmistakable voice and an ear for utterly addictive melody whatever the musical setting." Louder Than War
