Paul Thomas Saunders - In High Heels Burn It Down

In High Heels Burn It Down is released 7 April and is taken from his début album Beautiful desolation, which is out the same day.

Beautiful Desolation was written and recorded in Leeds and was produced solely by Paul and his bandmate Max Prior. It was mixed by Craig Silvey (The Horrors' Still Life, Arcade Fire's The Suburbs).

Paul, a former member of Lichfield Cathedral school choir and Leeds College of Music, recorded the album in a hotel gatehouse on the outskirts of Leeds, before moving down to Hove where he currently lives.
