A band to watch in 2006, Dublin five piece MoCrac hit the ground running with the release of their debut single, Happy on 17th February, the perfect track to coincide with Valentine’s Day. Happy is the first single to be taken from MoCrac’s debut album ‘Cash Is King’ which is set for release on 17th March 2006.
Cash Is King was originally available on a very limited underground basis in 2005 but now gets it label debut on Reekus Records due to increased interest in the band.
Happy was recently chosen as the lead track for the Maeve Binchy movie Tara Road starring Andie McDowell. The track was not only featured in the movie but was used as the sound-bed for a major television and radio advertising campaign for the film and will be included on the movie soundtrack.
Written and arranged by Maurice Ferriter (aka MoCrac) with additional creative input from producers Liam Mulvaney and Ed Joliffe (Asylum Studios – Jape, The Radio), Happy rides on a widescreen backround of strings fronted by drop-dead gorgeous guest vocals from chanteuse Cathy Davey and is a fitting ode and dialogue to MoCrac’s only son but could indeed be between loved one’s anywhere. The song has a simple sentiment and reflects on the essentials of the human condition and how we should see ourselves, “I hope you learn to love yourself.. And I don’t mean more than anyone else”.
Originally a studio project conceptualised by MoCrac, increased interest in the tracks in 2005 prompted Maurice to decide that the time was right to put a full time band on the road in order to bring these songs to life. Now a five piece band, MoCrac’s first date to kick of the New Year was in the Temple Bar Music Centre on 6th January 2006. This will be followed by a free in-store in Tower Records, Dublin on Saturday 18th February and by further dates around the country to coincide with the forthcoming album. First up will be the Sugar Club, Dublin on 18th March and in Roisin Dubh, Galway on March 30th. For constant updates check out: www.mocrac.com.
