Paul Walsh Releases Debut Pink Rabbits Single

April 30, 2021

He’s more familiar to TV viewers because of his job as a Sports anchor with Virgin Media News, but Paul Walsh has revealed a new side to the public, with the release of his debut single ‘It’s Over’, under the artist name Pink Rabbits.

After working with Dublin-based producer Ciaran Parnell, Paul has completed half of an album, with ‘It’s Over’ set to be the first of a number of single releases, before a debut album release towards the end of the year.

Paul has been writing songs for years, but decided to take it seriously when the number of songs in his catalogue continued to stack up!

The song was written about seven or eight years ago. It’s about someone reflecting on a relationship break up (how original, I know!) and that person coming to terms or almost thinking out loud about its ending. I guess the person is in the last throes of denial before accepting that… ‘It’s Over’,” he said.

I’ve been writing for about 15 years. I suppose I decided to focus on it seriously when I got sick of playing them in an empty bedroom at home! I felt the songs were on a par with what other Irish acts were producing, so decided to pursue it properly.”

Influenced by the likes of The National, Coldplay and Bell X1, Paul chose his favourite song by the National – Pink Rabbits – as his artist name.

I’ll be honest – I got a few strange looks from some friends when I first suggested the name! But the more I thought about the song, its lyrics and also the memories it evokes from around the time it was released, the more the name felt right.”

Since it’s release on April 23rd, ‘It’s Over’ has been available on via Spotify, iTunes and other streaming platforms and will be available to buy as a download on Bandcamp:
