Paul Spring Releases Electrofolk Single, “God Bite”

The rising electronic folk singer-songwriter and producer’s newest single is a genre-bending delight

Paul Spring is the rising experimental folk artist that should definitely be on your radar. Hailing from the band Holy Hive, Spring is reviving his solo-career with a new sound that is featured in the release of his new single, “God Bite.”  The single, written and produced by Spring himself, is an innovative blend of electronic sounds through the lens of folk music, with Spring’s soprano vocals floating over his new wave gorp-core-esque production.

“I was walking on Bedford and Lafayette and saw a city bus run over a beautiful husky,” said Spring on his inspiration for the song. “When I approached the dog to assist, it bit me, badly injuring my hand. When I left the hospital, my discharge papers misspelled the injury as a God Bite. I couldn’t play guitar for a while, and so focused on learning electronic music. The sound of this song is a direct result of that experience.”

The singer has an impressive resumé of collaborators, from his co-writing experience with indie band Fleet Foxes to singing as a backup singer for Post Malone on Saturday Night Live. Spring’s past work with Holy Hive has been featured from Rolling Stones to NPR, while his extensive writing career led him to work with artists like Kenny Beats, El Michels Affair, and Kirby, just to name a few.

In an elaboration on his new sound, Spring is releasing his full-length album, Thunderhead, on December 2. The project will uncover the artist’s meditations over communal, generational, and his own personal anger, showcasing Spring’s well-crafted songwriting and his genre-bending sound.
