We Cut Corners - new album and Róisín Dubh show

WE CUT Corners release their second album, Think Nothing, on the Delphi label, tomorrow, and play the Róisín Dubh that night at 9pm.

Think Nothing is the duo’s follow-up to their Choice Music Prize nominated debut Today I Realised I Could Go Home Backwards, and like that album, features mellow, highly melodic and intelligent songs (‘Maybe In The Future’, ‘Every Thief’ ) backed by sweeping strings - scored by respected contemporary Irish composer John Buckley - revealing the sophistication of We Cut Corners own writing.

There is also a new element with some harder, aggressive indie-rock (‘Mammals’, ‘This Is Then’ ). These latter tracks take a few listens to get used to, but give them a chance. The contrast with the softer songs works well, and there are discreet melodic subtleties that impress.

Cutting across the contrasting styles are witty, humorous, often clever lyrics (“I’m sorry I didn’t get home to make the children” - ‘Maybe In The Future’; “People in cubicles should not be spherical” - ‘Overtures’ ), which are as much a pleasure as the music.

Tickets are available at www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
