It may have been seven years since Paul Dempsey released his solo album Everything Is True but halfway into “The True Sea”, the opening track on his 2016 release Strange Loop, you forget about the long period in between.
The great thing about this album is that there’s going to be at least one or two songs that will have listeners tugging back and forth over which one is their favourite. As a whole, Strange Loop acts as a great introductory album as much as Everything Is True did for any newcomers to Dempsey’s solo career. Even now, he’s shown us that he’s set on doing his own thing and making no two records the same. It makes us forget that the wait for new material dragged out as long as it had – the final result was definitely worth it.
