Friday July 3rd Irish indieband Cronin released their new mini-album. It contains pre-existing songs, but those are unreleased remixes, stripped down versions and oddities. The results are magnificent!
With the recording of follow up to their critically acclaimed debut currently on hold with the Covid 19 lockdown Irish band Cronin release this mini-album.
Mick Cronin comments: “some of these mixes have been about for a some time and others are relatively fresh. With us unable to work in the studio we though now would be a good time to release these as a mini album. It’s a diverse mix compared to our releases so far, it shows another side of what we have in our heads.”
With a little help from their friends
Steve Wickham (The Waterboys) features on 2 tacks on Violin as does Vyv Long (Damien Rice) on cello and Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Gallon Drunk) string arrangement is even more haunting on the striped down version.
Production help came from long time collaborators Karl Odlum (Glen Hansard, The Frames) and Ger McDonnell (U2, Manic Street Preachers).
Cover art is a photo taken from an out house at Transmission Rooms by renownd photographer, DJ and Oasis brother Paul Gallagher form a recent visit.
