Cronin release new single 'Little London' on 19th May and Irish tour for vinyl release of debut album on Live Transmission Records now.


Cronin return for their biggest run of Irish shows for new single release and vinyl release of debut album.


'Little London' will be released on 19th May. The remixed track from their debut album features a string arrangement by long-time collaborator Terry Edwards, who is currently on tour as a member of PJ Harvey's band, which was recorded in London's The Church Studios famous for sessions with Bob Dylan and The Stone Roses to name a few.


"It's a dark, brooding tale of a young man trying to stop his love leaving him for the bright lights of London, kind of our Bond theme." Mick Cronin reflects on the Scott Walker-tinged track.


To coincide with the release and finally, the release on vinyl, of 'The First Kiss of Love' album, Cronin are doing their first Irish shows since their two-night run in The Olympia supporting Ocean Colour Scene.


"I love that kind of thing they do and they do it so well. Fantastic album." The Paul McLoone SHow - Today FM


"More than three years in the making, Cronin have with 'The First Kiss of Love' produced an album packed with dramatically ambitious and very satisfying music that they should be rightly proud of." Ceol Caint


"With this impressive paean to their rock-and-roll heroes, they have set a new benchmark. 8/10" Hot Press Magazine


"Injected with enough over-the-top bombast to make Neil Diamond or Scott Walker jealous, Cronin's debut is so committed to its own opulent take on the retro-pop milieu that it's hard not to be taken away by it, try as you might. 8/10" The Last Mixed Tape
