After Jape’s reworking of We Cut Corners’ last single ‘Best Friend’ comes Daithí’s remix of ‘Blue’. It’s the second track on We Cut Corners‘ second album Think Nothing, which is out in Ireland next Friday, April 25. I’ve had a couple of listens to it at this stage; first thoughts – it’s as electrifying as Today I Realised I Could Go Home Backwards. It’s darker lyrically, which contrasts with the brighter music. I interviewed Conall from WCC during the week and he said that’s exactly what the pair of them wanted. It was brought to life by Tommy McLoaughlin (Villagers, Soak) in his Donegal studio and should sound great live. Daithí, meanwhile, who plays the Button Factory this Saturday, strips the guitar from ‘Blue’ building a wobbly bass line around some histrionic vocals screaming “I am not a loner, I am just alone”. You can listen to his remix of ‘Blue’ below via Soundcloud, while the original is underneath it, via Spotify.
