Interview with Dubliner Frontman Paddy Hanna: “I ignore the zeitgeist”
The Dubliner, known for fronting the Grand Pocket Orchestra, has recently set out on a solo career. His debut record Leafy Stiletto was released to critical acclaim back in 2014. Now part of the Trout Records family, his last single "Underprotected" is a melodic, lilting, plaintive, yet still delightful song. In this interview, Hanna discusses his opera singing father, the personal physical work he put into "Underprotected", and some of his favourite contemporaries on the Dublin scene.
