Paul and The Meanie

Alternative // Newry , Down // It

Daragh McSloy and Smack Jack Leeman embody the Jindy Rockers that go by Paul and The Meanie.

They take their influence from jazz and indie, blending it with an unadulterated northern Irish sound. Think Jamie T meets Jamie Dornan.

The contrast in flair between the two lead entities unite to create a vibrant sound, held up by high energy music to dazzle any new lister or long time fan.

Capturing a live dynamic of bands like The Libertines, the boys express their authenticity through their lyrics, their chemistry through their sound and bond with their stage show.

The Yellow Bedroom Demo was recorded when the boys were 18 in McSloy’s bedroom across 2 hot summer days 2018. Since then, the boys have headlined multiple venues in Belfast, have played festivals such as Brightons The Great Escape and are on their way to play 3 Glastonbury dates in the summer of 2022.

“These guys produce a tight groove infested sound with slick guitar flirtations, suave tempos and refined musicianship” - Indie Buddy 

"Low slung jeans, liberated indie rock, the type of songs built for sunshine and cider. At least, on the surface." - Benjamin Magee, Chordblossom, Belfast.
