Coemac Neeson: A fearless lead singer with atmospheric new single…..

Cormac Neeson - Precious Cargo

Cormac Neeson released atmospheric new single Precious Cargo on 24th September, out on Social Family Records. Cormac Neeson, the fearless lead singer of Irish rock act The Answer and performer, singer-songwriter in his own right, releases a brand new atmospheric mood single that showcases his prodigious talent as a versatile composer and vocalist.

 Breaking free from any form of music genre pigeon holing, Neeson together with up and coming Northern Irish producer Jonny Fitch (The Sidemen / Emma Horan), have created a sonic masterpiece that channels the sublime dimensions of early Bon Iver with spacious production soundscapes and Neeson’s recognizable yet still unique vocal tones.

The song, co-written by Neeson, Fitch and Alex Francis, channels the strong parental instincts to love and protect the ones we hold close, at all cost and was developed by all three writers during the first Northern Irish COVID lockdown.

Says Neeson, «I actually developed a lot of the vocal ideas for this song during the first lockdown when I didn’t have access to a studio, so I would play and sing through the song every night but very quietly as my two children slept upstairs! Almost by accident, I developed this unusual close, whispering type vocal sound which sparked the idea to evolve the track into a full production. It is definitely a departure from anything I’ve ever released before but I’m very proud of it so we’re going to put it out there!!».

Precious Cargo comes with a sketch animated video directed by Northern Irish artist / director, Louis Nelson. Neeson came across some sketches that Nelson had left lying around in a recording studio where he was working and thought that his style of sketch animation would lend itself perfectly to portray a form of other worldly escapism that would suit Precious Cargo. Says Neeson «Over a month or so Louis put together a sketch storyboard that conveyed the protection and love of a young family that simply wanted to escape what they saw as a hostile world. Precious Cargo is really all about protecting those you love when the maddening world around you seems so out of kilter with itself!».

 Neeson’s co-writer Alex Francis has toured alongside the likes of Stereophonics, James Bay, Sting & Alanis Morissette and his music has been championed by Clash, Time Out & BBC Radio. He has showcased at the Isle of Wight festival twice, opened for Phil Collins in Hyde Park and performed at the London Palladium amongst other impressive touring highlights.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6828 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
