Liam Corcoran may be a name you’ve heard before. He was the lead singer of former Charlottetown, PEI band Two Hours Traffic. After the unfortunate end of the band, Liam ventured off on his own and is about to release his debut solo EP, ‘ROM-DROM’.
The EP is only seven songs long and I’m sure I’m not the only one wishing it was longer. I had the opportunity to see Liam and his band open for another Island favourite, Tim Chaisson, a few months ago where he played some of these songs. My favourite off of the EP is “Let It Be Now”, which was released as a single shortly before the rest of the EP was available. Throughout all of the songs you will hear beautiful harmonies and melodies. Some other personal favourites are “July Eh, July Oh” and “Catching the Stars”.
There aren’t many albums and EPs I immediately want to play over and over again, but ‘ROM-DROM’ is definitely one of them. There’s just something about it that you can’t really put into words. You just fall in love with the songs and how his voice melts together with the instruments. This is one EP that you need to add to your collection.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
