The music video for Padjo Dolan's latest single 'Blunder' takes us on a virtual road trip through the stunning Galway countryside. Watch it here...
Having grown up in the idyllic surroundings of County Clare, in the west of Ireland, Padjo Dolan has written songs tirelessly since he was a teenager and has formed numerous bands throughout school and college where he studied in Galway - a city known for nurturing musical talent. Having honed his skillset, he decided he was going to give it everything in 2019 and began writing and recording, readying himself to share his tapestry of carefully crafted music by the means of a debut album.
Blunder is Padjo's debut offering and you can watch the music video below. On the video, Padjo said; "We shot the video back in Carna, deep in the heart of Connemara. There is really no place like it and we managed to get some wicked shots of the landscape. We are blessed to have it only a few hours up the road. We were very lucky with how things played out; the weather, the sheep etc. It was the perfect location to capture the care free, laid back story that the song portrays."
Speaking about the song; "The idea for the song had been in my head for probably 5/6 years. It took a while for me to muster up the conviction to record it and get it out into the world. The song pretty much sums up a period of time for me where I had no clue what I was doing with my life. Every day was a mystery and every day had the potential for chaos and a few blunders, of which there was no shortage! I was living one day at a time and having a ball. I didn’t have a bob to my name and every move I made was closely followed by my auld lad shaking his head in disbelief. I feel like everybody will be able to relate to that in some capacity! It is a feel-good track that brings me back to those carefree summer days which everybody is longing for after a tough year in hibernation."
