Liam Corcoran, co-founder and lead singer of indie-pop band Two Hours Traffic, has released his debut solo effort, ROM-DROM.
Weaving together elements of alt-country, folk, and pop, ROM-DROM’s seven tracks explore the narrative of separation by distance. Recorded in the back room of Charlottetown’s only remaining record store, Back Alley Music, the self-described mini-album reflects the core of Corcoran’s Two Hours Traffic contributions—melody-driven musings that find their heart in simplicity. It includes the rolling piano lines of the single, the countrified two-step of “Thru The Dark,” and the lighthearted bounce of “July-eh, July-oh.”
Mixed by Dale Murray (Cuff The Duke, Christina Martin) and mastered by Andy Magoffin (Two Minute Miracles), ROM-DROM also features contributions from Prince Edward Island musicians 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).
