Electronica // Newbridge, Kildare // Synthpop, dancepop, electronic

Dublin-born, Kildare-based songwriter and electronic musician Paul Nolan has spent the last decade or so writing, recording, and performing as ilsantino, and quietly honing his own unique brand of retro-electropop.

While enjoying some success with early releases and collaborations with musicians including Gavin Glass, Dermot Lambert, and Garry O’Briain, Nolan’s more recent partnership with in-demand producer Conan Brophy has proved the most successful of his career to date.

Nolan’s ability to write simple, catchy pop tunes is perfectly complemented by Brophy’s production style and capacity to create bright, shiny, spacey electropop tracks packed with energy, atmosphere, and hooks. The pair have partnered on a string of singles and remixes over the last two years, covering much ground in the dream-pop/ dance-pop genres.

Here's what the music press has had to say about ilsantino's most recent single...

"As we traverse Ireland’s vibrant music scene, nestled in the heart of Dublin, we discover ILSANTINO, shaping the chillwave genre with his unmistakable signature. His latest single, “The Girl”, stands as an audacious testament to his musical prowess, coursing through electro beats, synth pop charm, and the warmth of male vocals. ILSANTINO serves up 80’s vibes with a contemporary edge, making it impossible not to groove to his symphony". - PopHits

"In the ever-evolving world of electronic music, only a few artists can balance emotional depth with the precision of electronic beats. Ilsantino is one of those rare artists. The musical persona of Dublin-born, Kildare-based artist Paul Nolan, Ilsantino's latest track, "The Girl (Kid Moxie Remix)," takes us on a journey through a sonic realm that's both hauntingly melancholic and irresistibly groovy". - Lyrical Odyssey
