Cronin have also brought in outside instrumentalists and special guests like The Waterboys, whose violinist Steve Wickham features on two tracks. In addition, Damien Rice cello player Vivienne Long features on new track Tell Me That You Want Me and Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, Gallon Drunk) on the remix of Little London. Across the album’s six interrogative tracks the band displays inspired lyrics, deep orchestral arrangements and lifting hooks.
New single “Several Perceptions” comes alongside a music video of the band performing the song in the studio.
On the making of A View From the Next Room, Mick Cronin says:
“Some of these mixes have been about for some time and others are relatively fresh. With us unable to work in the studio we thought now would be a good time to release these as a mini album. It’s a diverse mix compared to our releases so far, it shows another side of what we have in our heads.”
