He has recently signed a record deal with MoMT Records, who released his debut self titled album in 2007. The album was recorded over the last 6 years in various places and situations. Influenced by bands such as the Aphex Twin, Plaid, Boards of Canada and Brian Eno. The following is taken from the MoMT Records Press Release for the album Skink. "Skink is the debut release by Newbury, UK based electronica artist Paul Mulholland. The album is the fruits of five years of labour.
The tracks were recorded in a variety of locations and situations and mirror a musical and personal journey. Although the album takes is influenced by bands such as Boards of Canada, Brian Eno, Plaid and the ambient works of Richard D. James (AFX, Aphex Twin), Skink manages to create his own identity amongst these pioneers. The album touches on many musical styles from the sparse piano opening track “Nothing” to the dark unsettling ambience of “Minutes turn to Hours” to the melodic and dreamlike “Who we are?” Best listened to in a single sitting Skink should hopefully drag the listener into its rich and complex world of musical ideas and sonic textures. The album was mastered by John Sellekaers (Xingu Hill, Dead Hollywood Stars) at his Metarc studios and is the eighth release from Newbury based UK Independent label MoMT Records."
