Irish band Cronin have had a busy 2021 with their first original single in two years, titled 'Bank of Love'.
Influenced by Lou Reed's Transformer, Richard Hawley, and Jarv Is; the single has now been offered a '90s-tinged music video. Holding up the song's lyrics in the style of Love, Actually, the video is interspersed with shots of the band performing the track, juxtaposed by mundane everyday acts.
Described as "a love song that you can wash the dishes to," the catchy, down-tempo number was mixed by Ger McDonnell.
"This was one of the first songs we started jamming to get the juices flowing after not seeing each other for three months when the first lockdown was lifted last year," Cronin said, referencing 'Bank of Love'.
"We wanted to get back to the feeling of being a young band playing songs in a garage."
The musical project comprised of Irish brothers Johnny and Michael Cronin was previously known as The Aftermath, which earned the duo critical and commercial success in the charts and radio. Returning from the UK to their native Ireland in the early 2000s, the pair have since gone in another direction with new moniker Cronin.
The alternative rock/indie group released their most recent mini-album A View From The Next Room in July of 2020, and have continued work ever since. Along with Fiachra Milner and Brian Murphy, the Cronin brothers created the album at Transmission Rooms recording studio.
Cronin unveiled a new video for previous single 'There's A Darkness' last September, and shared their unique rendition of The Cure's track 'A Forest' back in February.
Cronin collaborate regularly with legendary Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan, appearing with him on studio sessions, live gigs and TV shows. The well-connected band have appeared on stage with Bono and Nick Cave. Pete Doherty has dedicated songs on stage to them, Noel Gallagher hid behind their CD to escape paparazzi and Niall Horan has attended their gigs.
