Having just returned with their cracking new album Impostors, We Cut Corners spoke to us in the latest issue of Hot Press to talk about the record and much more...
Nearly 10 years ago, your humble correspondent was a judge at the JD Set live band competition. It was love at first listen when an act called Camogie Lovers took to the now defunct Crawdaddy stage. The assignment also included a trip to Belfast to play with the then little-known Two Door Cinema Club ("They'll never go anywhere," we pooh-poohed presciently of the latter act).
But the rabid appreciation for the duo that became We Cut Corners was indeed justified.
"We had such modest aspirations at that stage," says drummer/singer Conall O'Breachain, remembering the encounter. "We had been writing and recording together acoustically and not releasing anything for quite a few years. The JD Set was kind of the last shot of the dice really. We were just hoping to get through the competition and we thought, if we did, we should go for it." Sell-out shows and three Choice-nominated albums later, We Cut Corners have just unveiled their fourth, Impostors, to much acclaim.
