Corner Boy are set to release their new single ‘Kingdom Come and Go’, which is out across all digital platforms on 1 July. A knock-out punch of energetic feel-good indie/folk, ‘Kingdom Come and Go’ is the second single from Corner Boy’s debut album which is due for release in October, 2022.
Featuring exploding brass sections, racing fiddle crescendo and an anthemic sing along chorus, the song explores the conversation of connection; highs, lows, certainties and uncertainty through heartfelt melody and poignant lyrics. Produced by Gavin Glass (David Keenan, Lisa Hannigan) with combinations of folk rock, traditional & indie alternative.
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.
‘Kingdom Come and Go’, the second single from Corner Boy’s upcoming debut album, is set for release on the 1 July with their debut album due to be released in October, 2022.
