Info: Ahead of the release of his fourth album, shiny silvery things, which is due for release next month, Cork solo act Cormac O'Caoimh released the lead single, 'Second Hand Clothes', only yesterday. The latest album is to be the follow up to the hugely successful 2014 LP, the moon loses it's memory, which received stellar reviews in MOJO, The Sunday Times, and The Irish Times among many others. 

Like the last album, there is undoubted warmth to O'Caoimh's sound and vocals on 'Second Hand Clothes', it also sounds richer in terms of production, and more wholesome, with the songwriter introducing more instrumentation, whilst also retaining that bare and honest feel. Something which O'Caoimh is most adept at is bringing a comforting smile to the face of the listener, but at the same time, tempering that with a subtle moroseness, almost pointedly delivered in the song's very final seconds. It's a very welcome return from the Corkman, and we look forward to sharing our review of the full album next month.

Cormac O'Caoimh will be playing The Acoustic Yard Festival in Westport, 5th-7th of May, Mick Murphy's in Ballymore Eustace on the 8th May, Triskel Christchurch in Cork on the 13th of May, and DC Music Club in Dublin on the 19th of May.
