Montreal-based musician Paul Jacobs returns today with “Day to Day,” the beautiful third single from his upcoming album Pink Dogs on the Green Grass. Available for pre-order currently, his new solo effort will be released on April 30th via Blow The Fuse Records. He also is announcing a virtual album launch scheduled for May 7th, 2021.
Carried by powerful drums, the single delves into a profoundly lush and dreamy atmosphere, where Jacobs’ nonchalant voice blends with hypnotic guitars and a mesmerizing flute, creating a melody reminiscent of Kurt Vile, Cass McCombs and early Beck. Accompanied by an animated video, this new song follows “Underneath the Roses” and “Half Rich Loner,” both released earlier this year.
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.
