Bookmark and Share
“What a brilliant debut album!” “5/5”
ARTROCKER

"We Cut Corners use spiky rebelliousness or gentle regret, taking to either form with aplomb"
THE 405

“We Cut Corners have created something that will stick for all the right reasons”
THE SUNDAY TIMES (Debut - Album Of The Week)

"…reminiscent of Belle & Sebastian at their most sweetly caustic"
HOT PRESS

Dynamic Irish alt/indie duo WE CUT CORNERS return with their new single ‘BEST FRIEND’ out on 3rd March 2014 on DELPHI in the UK & Europe. ‘BEST FRIEND’ is the second single from their new album ‘THINK NOTHING’ set to be released in May 2014. Their latest track “YKK” has received airplay and reviews from Amazing Radio, XFM, MTV Hive, BBC Northern Ireland whilst previously receiving support from BBC Radio 6 presenter Tom Robinson. The duo have toured internationally with the likes of The Maccabees, Villagers and Frightened Rabbit having also headlined shows at high-profile London venues The Social and Barfly along with sold out shows in Dublin and appearances at festivals including Forbidden Fruit, The Camden Crawl Dublin and Iveagh Gardens (with Bell X1).

WE CUT CORNERS consists of guitarist John Duignan and drummer Conall O'Breachain. The duo have effortlessly established themselves in Dublin’s indie-rock scene and have successfully developed their characteristic rock-pop style. They write their songs on both guitar and drums, developing skillful and sophisticated lyrics, spat with lucid precision and a subtle layer of dark humour. It’s weird and wonderful, abstract at times, and brilliant. The combination of the duo is principal to their success, with the blending of their powerful unique vocal harmonies creating distinctively valorous intonations. WE CUT CORNERS upcoming album ‘THINK NOTHING’ featuring the single ‘BEST FRIEND’ was mixed by Ben Hillier who has worked with artists such as U2, Blur and The Editors and was mastered by Bunt Stafford-Clark, who has worked with the likes of Elbow and Placebo. WE CUT CORNERS take inspiration from Ryan Adams, The Velvet Underground, Leonard Cohen and Radiohead all the while creating their own brand of concise and articulate Indie, presenting us with an intriguing and expansive live sound. ‘BEST FRIEND’ is the perfect distillation of this.

‘THINK NOTHING’ will no-doubt be a flawless follow up to their critically acclaimed 2011 debut album “TODAY I REALISED I COULD GO HOME BACKWARDS”, which was nominated by Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year. Additionally an animated music video for ‘BEST FRIEND’ is due to be premiered with a singular publication in the weeks prior to the release. The producers of the video are the renowned Kijek / Adamski whose work was nominated by Pitchfork as one of the top videos of 2013; not to mention they were the same people behind WE CUT CORNERS video for ‘PIRATES LIFE’ featured on their previous album. This video won the award for best music video at the Annecy International Animation Festival, so be sure to expect a tantalising visual experience.

Watch this space for imminent updates as WE CUT CORNERS settle on their path to expand internationally. Details of live dates to follow.
