Nestled somewhere between North Bay, Ontario and Warsaw sit Paula and Karol, who are helping define the multinational nature of Polish and Canadian pop music. Inspired by Canadian kitchen parties, acoustic instrumentations, and music collectives while growing up, Paula moved to Warsaw to study and a few years later met Karol. Having played in rock bands for the past 10 years, Karol had dreams of finding an Emmylou Harris to his Bob Dylan, a Laura Marling to his Noah and the Whale.
Despite existing for a little over a year, they’ve performed at every major music festival in Poland as well as other alternative music festivals. Paula & Karol have just released their full album, Overshare, which they’ll be playing from on 19th April.
“[They are] Poland’s new superheroes. Not the tight pants, fluttering cape kind. More like, come to our concert – we’ll break your heart, and then we’ll fix it up kind,” – The Guardian, January 15, 2011
