PaulWetz is back with his next release for hfn music, having graced us with the sublime Bruises last time around. Here, the young producer, singer and songwriter who grew up in Germany’s Black Forest, brings us Hypnotize Me - another bewitching pop gem filled with drama, attitude and emotion - and never without his signature ear for pop hooks. Wetz’s voice remains a joy - gentle yet edgy, while the thick, rounded kick and bass pounds us into a gentle submission.
"I wrote the song in a painting studio where I made lots of music the past two years and had a small room with my instruments, a microphone, headphones and my laptop. In the beginning of the pandemic I felt that on top of living a weird life already, it alienated me even more from my surroundings, my sisters live abroad and I missed them.The track probably has the hardest hitting kickdrum I ever used, because I felt so numb that day that I wished for something to remind me that I am alive. It’s a song for everyone who feels alienated from the outside world and searches for refuge in music" Paul says.
