ABOUT "SLOW TRAIN"
It’s a new departure for A Band Called Paul as we boss us some bossanova - in an indie way - on this new release “SLOW TRAIN”.

It’s somewhat of an indie homage to Henry Mancini.
“Indie Lounge”, if you will.

With a texture of sweeping strings, fluttering woodwind and soulful saxophone sitting atop a swinging upright bass and loose bossanova drum groove, the retro feel of the track’s hook is blended with a distinctly indie layer of chunky hand percussion and some ripping guitar.

lyrics

LYRICS
Down in a carriage that's closer to the back
There sits a man in a Panama hat.
His face is turned to the window with a look in his eyes that says
Whatever happens it will come as no surprise

And there's people at the front, people at the back,
People all around me as we roll along the track
And we're leaning to the left, veering to the right,
Coming down a tunnel with the end of it in sight

And it's a slow train passing through
Yeah it's a slow train and it's coming for you.

I see a woman and her daughter, or I think that's who they are.
They're sitting facing on the right side of the car.
The woman listens as the younger one speaks.
She's talking quickly like she hasn't talked for weeks

And there's people at the front, people at the back,
People all around me as we roll along the track
And we're leaning to the left, veering to the right,
Coming down a tunnel with the end of it in sight

And it's a slow train passing through
Yeah it's a slow train and it's coming for you.
It's a slow train passing through
Yeah it's a slow train and it's coming for you.

People at the front, people at the back,
People all around me as we roll along the track
And we're leaning to the left, veering to the right,
Coming down a tunnel with the end of it in sight

And it's a slow train passing through
Yeah it's a slow train and it's coming for you.
It's a slow train passing through
Yeah it's a slow train and it's coming for you.
