Divide and Conquer is Paul McCann’s Single

Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed Paul McCann in the past but this talented artist is back with a new cool single Divide and Conquer and I want to share my opinion about it.

Divide and Conquer is Paul McCann’s Single

The rhythmic cadence of this new single by this talented artist immediately convinced me.

A sound that makes you want to take the car and wander the endless American roads one of those days when you want to be alone and feel free.

The thing I liked the most is that although the music transfers positive energy, the theme dealt with in the lyrics is instead deep and sad.

This combination makes this song truly fascinating.

Paul McCann managed to make life energy coexist with the mystery of death. Somehow Divide and Conquer makes you accept life for what it is…and death is a part of life too.

Opposites come together in this magical melody giving the listener an eternal moment suspended in time.

Absolutely reconfirmed.

Deep and Intense

Divide and Conquer is Paul McCann’s Single

Divide and Conquer is an energetic alternative, power pop number which features hooky guitars, distinctive vocals and an infectious beat that will have you wanting more! It’s a captivating track driving guitars and an energetic drum fill immediately grabbing your attention before Paul’s distinctive vocals take over  leading up to the snappy, infectious chorus. It has very impressive guitar riffs that make the track a rip-roaring anthem and showcases Paul’s ability as not only a singer but also a guitarist. Although the beat of the track is upbeat, fierce and energetic, the lyrics are sad as they deal with McCann’s desolation after the sudden passing of his father.
