LONDON, -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- "This is just perfect guitar pop right here. The singer is wailing like a banshee and the drums are as loud as a jet engine. They’re one of those bands that have constantly just gone under radar and it gets really really annoying.. ”
Radio 1- Phil Taggart

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

“What a brilliant debut album!” “5/5”

Innovative Dublin duo We Cut Corners have announced the next single from their hotly-anticipated forthcoming album ‘Think Nothing’ . Following on from the success of previous singles ‘Ykk’ and ‘Best Friend’, ‘Blue’ finds the pair in snarling, jagged form, funnelling their characteristic skilful and sophisticated lyrics through an electrified sense of anguish.

‘BLUE’ is the latest taste of the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2011 debut, ‘Today I Realised I Could Go Home Backwards’, which drew praise from all quarters and saw the band nominated for The Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year. In the past few years they’ve enjoyed radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 6, XFM and Amazing Radio, while they’ve toured internationally with the The Maccabees, Villagers and Frightened Rabbit. The latest single comes backed with a glitchily skittering remix of the lead track courtesy of Irish producer Daithi, as well as a reworking of previous single ‘Best Friend’ by Jape.

WE CUT CORNERS are 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, and spit their lyrics 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 and blending of their powerful unique vocal harmonies is principal to their success. Think Nothing is a diverse representation of We Cut Corners musical prowess, and has been mixed by Ben Hillier who has worked with artists such as Blur, The Horrors and The Editors, and mastered by Bunt Stafford-Clark, who has previously 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, and presenting us with an intriguing and expansive live sound. Watch this space for imminent updates as WE CUT CORNERS settle on their path to expand internationally.
