Austin Paul’s Introduces The Concept Of "Temporary Love” With Official Video
On his recent single “Temporary Love”, Nashville based singer/songwriter Austin Paul imbues his intimate, personable indie pop music with the dark view of love. This is visualized perfectly in the official music video.
We didn’t have a chance to interview Austin after his set at III Points in Miami, but we eventually caught up and spoke about projects, releases, and fun facts. Read more below.
Tell us something about yourself that your fans may not know….
I recently purchased a small Beta fish named Ridley after the director of the1979 film, Alien starring Sigourney Weaver. I was robbed at gunpoint the night of this purchase, and Ridley fell on the ground and survived(*and so did I.) SO he is my lucky fish now.
What kind of style would you say your music resembles?
I feel like what I've been creating recently has a bit of an indie rock feel, and I like to create of a psychedelic feeling in the songs/stories.
What kind of mark do you want to leave on listeners after hearing your music?
A general feelings of experiencing something new. I like the feeling of watching a movie and getting immersed in that world.
What is your ultimate goal when creating a new track?
To enjoy the process and to finish what I've started regardless of peoples ideas of what's possible to accomplish on my own. I live in a place where I don't know many people, and for a short period of time I let that be an excuse to not create and release content. I've given up on some invisible standard of quality or technique. I'd rather explore finding my own voice musically and visually.
How would you say you differ from the rest of the industry?
I think when people say they're independent, they are severely underestimating the people around them that are supporting them and the communities they get to participate in. Right now, that circle for me is very limited because of my recent move to a more secluded environment.
What's the toughest part about trying to push boundaries in music?
The fear that people won't understand it. Which is just another form of resistance to not create. It's a lie, bad energy, the devil, whatever you want to call it, it's there and it doesn't want to get things done. It's something that never gets easier and the only solution is creating your own routine and remaining vigilant/disciplined.
When can we expect the next release?
I'm trying my best to release videos weekly, whether it's through my music or through my web series. So you can probably expect another video next week.
