ACCLAIMED DUBLIN indie-rock duo We Cut Corners are enjoying a busy November, with the month having already seen the launch of their third album, The Cadences of Others, and the double A-Side single, ‘Oh’/‘Mandinka’, and now comes a Galway show.
We Cut Corners - John Duignan and Conall O’Breachain - play the Róisín Dubh on Friday November 18 at 9pm. The Cadences of Others, which was released on November 4, as a 7” red vinyl and digital release, through The Delphi Label, was accompanied by the new single, which features a cover of Sinead O’Connor’s ‘Mandinka’, accomapnied by the Booka Brass Band.
The Cadences of Others, was recorded in a church in the Dublin suburbs, produced by We Cut Corners, and mastered by Josh Bonati (Sufjan Stevens, Mac DeMarco, Tallest Man On Earth ). It features contributions from Villagers’ Conor O’Brien on bass, members of Booka Brass, and the Fratres String Quintet.
Duignan and O’Breachain have won praise for their eclectic songs, which range from angular pop and garage rock to wistful indie-folk, always coupled with their unique lyrical deftness. Both We Cut Corners’ debut and sophomore albums were nominated for the Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year.
