New music from Paul Usher

New music from Paul Usher

Filmed at Manchester's 'Sammy's' Northern Quarter cocktail bar, Paul Usher releases his new music video 'Time Don't Heal' on Friday 16th October 2020.

Paul is a rising star featured on Graham Norton, Radio 2, Billboard magaine and had praise from Attitude magazine and Gay Times.

With its Wes Anderson aesthetic, original 1970's decor, faux-fur coats and sequin jackets this tour-de-force of music, fashion, art, style and northern charm is a must-see. The track is an acerbic yet soulful bop akin to a lovechild of Childish Gambino and Elton John.

The wonderful Wes Anderson aesthetic of Swann Street’s ‘Sammy’s’ is the setting of Paul’s ‘Time Don’t Heal’ music video. Original seventies wallpaper of luminous yellow, iconic of-the-time artwork, vintage glassware (and softcore porn magazines) adorn this unique cocktail bar of Manchester’s Northern Quarter. It creates a stunning landscape to equal Paul’s creativity which allows him and the storyline to unravel in an artistic wonderland.

‘How could a second hand grant me a second chance? Do you really think in that way?’ Paul poses on the opening line. There’s a dichotomy between the lush harmony, upbeat 70’s sounding R&B rhodes riff and the broodingly dark lyrics ‘loaded gun chambers emptied and filled up again’. ‘I love that,’ Paul says ‘I feel that’s a reflection of life; it’s always pulling you in two different directions at once.’
