After announcing his upcoming album Pink Dogs on the Green Grass back in January,
Paul Jacobs returns with the single, “Underneath the Roses,” accompanied by a music video
mixing animation and live footage. With a soaring melody and dissonant guitars, this song
takes the listener on a winding trajectory that culminates in an exhilarating outro. This new
single follows the release of “Half Rich Loner,” which caught the attention of NME, Brooklyn
Vegan, Exclaim!, DIY and Stereogum earlier this winter. The Windsor, Ontario native’s new album is available for pre-order now and will be released on April 30th via Blow The Fuse. Paul Jacobs will perform on March 16th during the Dedstrange online showcase, as part of SXSW 2021.

Pink Dogs on the Green Grass is available for pre-order now.

“Underneath the Roses” was written and recorded right around the time the world started to close down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Just like the video for his previous single, Paul
animated it himself. “When drawing the video, I was looking out my window and was seeing
the world as a pretty dead, dark place”, says the Montreal-based musician. “It was a month
into winter and the moods were getting heavy. I ran with a theme of people in an underworld who don’t realize they’re more dead than alive. They’ve accepted their reality and don’t understand how much more you can get out of life.”

The songwriting on Pink Dogs on the Green Grass was inspired by those unwanted
moments in life that stick with you, like unexpected encounters or bizarre situations that
repeat themselves in your dreams. For a long time Jacobs’ has wanted to marry his love of
psychedelic, timeless studio recordings with his independent, rebellious indie spirit, and
his apartment studio allowed him to explore this with acoustic drums and more organic
sounds. This is the essence of his album, a 13-track collection of ageless, modern melodies
inspired by classic acts past and present, with a twist of new technology and topics. Pink
Dogs on the Green Grass
 is a deeply personal record on which he opens up about his
experience in life through the lense of folk, pop, rock and psychedelic music.
