Another month, another single from Cathal Coughlan’s much anticipated (ok, in certain quarters) first album in a decade. Hot on the heels of poptastic title track Song of Co-Aklan, comes ‘Owl In The Parlour’.
The song is a swaggering cabaret number. Underpinned by a satisfyingly noisy rumbling groove. Old phone-book tonsils (ask your folks) is sounding as great as he ever has. A mish-mash of imagery dragged from the embers of dying empire. (Whose? Who cares? They all go the same way.) The soaring chorus ringing in some hope among the ruins Time will erase us… Ah, yes.
