Paul Jacobs releases his new EP 185 on the Corner with a music video for Hold On

Following the release of the singles After Dark and The Tree Outside My House, Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Paul Jacobs unveils 185 On the Corner, a set of 4 psychedelic, folk-infused songs that showcase the musician’s knack for hazy soundscapes, hypnotic grooves and subdued atmospheres, out today via Bonsound. Hold On, one of the new tracks featured on this EP, is accompanied by a self-directed music video, in line with Paul’s DIY ethos.

Following the spring 2021 release of his album Pink Dogs on the Green Grass, which received critical acclaim from publications such as Pitchfork, BrooklynVegan, Pan M 360, Le Devoir, Exclaim!, DIY Mag and Cult MTL, 185 on the Corner crystallizes a period of time during which the prolific artist went through a lot of changes. On this new collection of songs, Jacobs once again delivers the neo-psychedelic sound he is known for, but this time with a slightly mellower approach and velvety mid-tempo rhythms. Through his lyrics, the multi-instrumentalist paints vivid, dreamy imagery, capturing his feelings during that period of instability and reflecting on his emotional growth.

The video for Hold On was filmed by Paul and his bandmates while they were touring the United States. The song is an upbeat, yet soothing indie rock track Paul wrote while looking back on his childhood. The comforting lyrics advise “Hold On, Dear” while the drums and percussions carry the listener on a dreamy, psychedelic journey. There is something inherently nostalgic about the song, from the 80’s-sounding keys to the hypnotic melody that incites to dive deep into one’s most intimate memories.

Paul Jacobs will present the songs from this new EP and more at various festivals this summer. Find him onstage at the FEQ in Quebec City and at the Grosse Lanterne in Béthanie. The Montreal-based musician and his band will also make their way to the United States in August for some shows in the Midwest. Consult the list below for all tour dates.
