Corner Boy have just released of their highly anticipated self-titled debut album today, Friday 28th October – with new single ‘The Sea’ out now across all digital platforms.
A knockout punch of marauding dark folk infused with traditional Irish instruments, ‘The Sea’ is the third and final single from Corner Boy’s debut album. Featuring unrelenting funereal drumming, empathic vocals and screaming guitar ‘The Sea’ explores a dialogue of inner turmoil through striking imagery and impassioned lyrics. Produced by Gavin Glass, Orphan Studios, Ireland.
For nearly a decade late-night driving, couch surfing and service station dinners fuelled Corner Boy’s ever-evolving foot stomping ramble through the many pubs, clubs, rooms and ruins of every shape and size up and down Ireland and further afield.
As a result a collection of songs quietly willed their way into existence representative of this experience living and learning on the road and crafted by the associated peaks and troughs that come with the transient territory.
Fast forward to March 2020 and with the band’s 2002 Ford Transit van (Sheila) now indisposed a moment finally arrived for Corner Boy to record their debut album. Under the tutelage of producer Gavin Glass the band sought refuge in Orphan Studios and some 18 months later, emerged from the other side with a debut album in hand.
Very much the aural amalgam, the album explores in varying degrees combinations of folk, rock, traditional, bluegrass and alternative. Accompanied by heartfelt lyrics as earnest as they are resonant.
The highly anticipated self-titled debut album Corner Boy is out now.
