Irish electro band Cut Once is comprised of Aisling Browne (formerly of Solar Taxi) and Michael Heffernan. The pair met at Temple Lane Studios, where Michael is also Head Engineer.
Bringing a darker side to techno, Cut Once is starting to develop a bit of a cult following in Dublin and further afield.
The old school-inspired video starts by following a girl singing and dancing along to their new track ‘Playng With Fire’. Upon first glance, this could easily be a 90’s pop video, however the video soon delves into something a little darker, as the girl enters a Cut Once show in an industrial venue.
It’s a perfectly fitting video for what is a really cool track.
Sounds like: Banks, Blood Orange, Jessie Ware, ASTR, Empathy Test
The Dave Tynan-directed video for ‘Seance of Light’ follows Dave Rudden‘s humorous short story ‘Bleach’, which witnesses an interview unfold after the job hunter’s friend spikes his tea with a tab of acid.
‘Seance of Light’ has been taken from Jape’s latest album, ‘This Chemical Sea’ which can be purchased on iTunes now.
The David Nelligan Thingfrom Cork, Ireland, released album ‘Dark Matters’ earlier this year; a folk-pop melting pop with some impressive DIY home-made music videos. Having now found a more synth driven, indietronica sound, The David Nelligan Thing have released a new E.P, the title track of which is ‘Who Is Silvia?’, an arrangement based on lyrics by William Shakespeare.
The track uses overdriven synth bass lines, with lightly pulsating melody lines, and the video includes the Kansas City Civic Ballet, adapting their scarf-dance from Léo Delibes’s ballet ‘Sylvia’ to the new banging beats and swirling synths of TDNT’s ‘Who Is Silvia? (By William Shakespeare)’.
The David Nelligan Thing’s E.P. ‘Who Is Synthia?’ is now available to download for free (or to pay!) on Bandcamp.
Irish electro-poppers Two Door Cinema Club have made a brand new video for ‘Changing of the Seasons’ which you can view below. The video depicts the band members having a very awkward press conference, and taking great offence to one Journalist (played by Ewan McIntosh from The Office) implying that reaching fame must have been harder for these lads, than other bands.
Although it’s not 100% clear, it’s implied that the band’s lack of good looking members may be the reason everyone is surprised by their success. Either-way, whatever the journalist was insinuating, it didn’t go down well….
Two Door Cinema Club frontman Alex Trimble has said their next album won’t be out until 2015, which is a long time to wait! Let’s hope there’s a few more single releases before then.
