Published Jul 22, 2015With Maritimes indie rock troupe Two Hours Traffic having called it quits back in 2013, frontman Liam Corcoran is now putting his focus on a solo career. As such, the Charlottetown, PEI performer has revealed plans to issue an EP by the end of the summer.
A press release notes that Corcoran's ROM-DROM will be delivered as a digital download on August 28. The seven-song mini-album was recorded in the back room of Charlottetown's Back Alley Music, and is said to feature "melody-driven musings that find their heart in simplicity."
Stylistically, the collection apparently has Corcoran flirting with alt-country and pop sounds, while his words "explore the narrative of separation by distance." Though it is technically a solo release, the singer-songwriter invited a cast of musicians to take part in the sessions. This includes Kinley Dowling (Hey Rosetta!), Aaron Crane (English Words), Andrew MacDonald and Derek Ellis (Two Hours Traffic), Tim Chaisson, Roger Carter (North Lakes, Racoon Bandit), and Iain McCarvill (The Meds).
On the technical side of things, Dale Murray mixed the EP, while mastering was handled by Andy Magoffin.
