We Cut Corners are guitarist/vocalist John Duignan and drummer/vocalist Conall Ó Breachain.
New single ‘Christmas As Usual’ is a celebration of the wonderful, familiar dullness of the Irish Yuletide experience. It was written and recorded in the past few months when it feels that, as a nation, we’re yearning for that comforting, unremarkable holiday like never before.
The Dublin two-piece have carved out a reputation for critically acclaimed, lyrically-rich songs over the release of four albums and most recently the four-track ‘Muscle Memory’ EP, all on Irish independent label Delphi.
The EP was released on Friday 28th August 2020, and the title track has received radio play on national and regional radio in Ireland, and on BBC 6 Music in the UK. The dynamic drum/guitar combination, and the blending of powerful, unique vocal harmonies is principal to their success, both on record and in their highly energetic live performances.
We Cut Corners’ work across four albums has consistently drawn praise from critics, also seen in three album nominations for The Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year.
