‘Whispers & Silent Screams’ is the eagerly-anticipated 2nd album by Dublin-based artist Darragh Cullen on his own Arclight Records label. The album follows his acclaimed  debut album ‘The Finish Line’, released in 2010, which garnered many high profile fans like legendary Hot Press writer Jackie Hayden, respected New Zealand singer-songwriter Liam Finn and former Blink frontman Dermot Lambert.

A launch night for the album will take place on October 28th in Whelans, Wexford St., Dublin 2. Tickets cost €8, doors open at 8.00p.m. After this, Darragh will be setting up many dates around the country and abroad, where his dazzling reputation as a live act, as witnessed this year by his barnstorming performance at Electric Picnic, will be showcased.

 The album was recorded in The New Room, Slane, with engineer Colin Scallan, and Silverline Studios, Newtownmountkennedy with engineer Ivan Jackman, who also mixed the album. The album was mastered by Richard Dowling at WAV Mastering, who has previously worked with artists such as Paul McCartney, The Waterboys, Foo Fighters, Ben Folds Five, and Jape, on their Choice Music Award winning album ‘Ocean of Frequency’. Darragh wrote, arranged, produced and played all the instruments on each of the albums 14 tracks, (bar a co-write and vocal on the track ‘Ordinary Girl’ from fellow musician and friend Tom Toner). Stylistically, the album hops drastically from genre-to-genre, going from punk rock to country to waltz to arena rock to acoustic ballad without hesitation. However, it all ties together with Darragh’s distinctive vocals and thoughtful, poetic lyrics.

The album is being preceded by the double A-side single ‘Over/Plastic Cup’. ‘Over’ is a glam-rock stomper with a chorus that was made for singing along to at the top of your lungs, while ‘Plastic Cup’ showcases the softer, acoustic-driven side of the album to breath-taking effect.
