MIKAL CRONIN

Shacklewell Arms on 11th June 
 
S/T debut out now via Trouble In Mind Records
 
 
SIT DOWN AND LISTEN NOW:
APATHY’ - 
 
“ a killer introduction to Cronin as a solo artist” Pitchfork

"a debut that will fry your ears and break your heart..." Mojo 
 
"small, but near-perfectly formed" Uncut 
 
Conceived and recorded as a sort of therapy to help cope with adjusting to post-college life, an ensuing break-up and geographic isolation Mikal Cronin steps momentarily away from the rhythm section of Orange County surf-punk bashers, The Moonhearts and the Ty Segall Band with a one-off solo show at London's Shacklewell Arms on 11th June 2012.

"his new solo album is all kinds of aceness" NME, Radar Tip of the Day
 
 
Cronin's s/t solo album (released late last year via Trouble In Mind Records) was not  a ‘vanity project’ or half-baked endeavour – Mikal’s solo debut is fully realized, cohesive and beautiful. With themes that are personal as they are universal; questioning the future, accepting the past and living in the moment. 

Taking influences such as the late sixties Del Shannon and The Everly Brothers and filtering them through his own mutant Californian fuzz, Mikal deftly explores his singer-songwriter side that at moments feel like a punk Harry Nilsson or Curt Boettcher  - balancing sweet melodies and chords with chunky, psychedelic guitar freakouts. Don’t let the opening Beach Boys harmonies of ‘It’s Alright?’ fool you into thinking this record can be easily pinned down. 

With long time friend and collaborator, Ty Segall producing, Eric Bauer (Ty Segall, Royal Baths) running the tape machine and guest like John Dwyer of Thee Oh Sees, you can be sure you’re in for something special. Once those guitars kick in, and you hit the first transcendent chorus, you’ll be hooked….
