Paul Marshall: Not splitting up with himself

Back in March we chatted up Leeds UK singer/songwriter Paul Marshall. Paul had just finished an encouraging 2008; a year that saw him sign to the Bella Union label and open a few shows for the enchanting Bat For Lashes. For Marshall it was the culmination of a lot of hard work, intense self-doubt, and touring continental Europe with his ski masked industrial metal duo.

As I write Marshall is recording, and says:

The new record is shaping up to be quite a change from the acoustics of Vultures and will feature a lot more instruments, loops, percussion etc and is actually heading down the band route in many ways. It’s not going to be RADICALLY different, i.e. songs like ‘Cross Stitched Lips’ will be on there and ‘We Could Use Your Blood’ will finally get to see the light of day.
It is due to this and the fact that i have a fucking boring name that the name ‘Paul Marshall’ is going to be thrown out and this album is going to be released under a new guise which will be revealed later.
