Paul Thomas Saunders has released his début album, 'Beautiful Desolation', through Atlantic Records.
'Beautiful Desolation' was written and recorded in Leeds, and was produced solely by Paul and his bandmate Max Prior. It was mixed by Craig Silvey (The Horrors' Still Life, Arcade Fire's The Suburbs).
Paul, a former member of Lichfield Cathedral school choir and Leeds College of Music, recorded the album in a hotel gatehouse on the outskirts of Leeds, before moving down to Hove where he currently lives.
Informed by the Greek electronic composer Vangelis and Jean-Claude Vannier, 'Beautiful Desolation' is a record of vast space and atmosphere, driven by this unique artist's soaring vocal.
