Irish indie band Cronin has been busy during these corona times. They released mini album A View From The Next Door (with remixes of old songs), played with U2 and Glen Hansard in Ireland’s The Late Late Show special to raise money for The Simon Community, and appeared in the Julien Temple Documentary ‘Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan’. Now they come up with new work for the first time in two years: ‘Bank of Love’.

A love song that you can wash the dishes to

Mick Cronin about the process: “This was one of the first songs we started jamming to get the juices flowing after not seeing each other for 3 months when the first lockdown was lifted last year. We wanted to get back to the feeling of being a young band playing songs in a garage.

We were listening to a lot of Lou Reed’s Transformer, Richard Hawley, Jarv Is. We started it the night Scott Walker died and it took another form with the pandemic. A love song that you can wash the dishes to.”

Bank of Love was recorded at Transmission Rooms, Drumlish, Co Longford by Mick Cronin. Mixed by Ger McDonnell (U2, Manic Street Preachers) and Mastered by Richard Dowling at WAV Mastering, Limerick. It is the first single from the new album, scheduled to be released in mid-2021. This will be the second album after the critically acclaimed debut album The First Kiss of Love.

A few nice words on Cronin:

“Touches of Neil Diamond, Nick Cave, Richard Ashcroft.”

Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6

“Pure Celtic Soul.” 

Shane MacGowan, The Pogues
