Stream: Cry Monster Cry – Atlas


Having received quite the response for their album, Rhythm of Dawn, Dublin alt-pop brother duo Richie and James Martin AKA Cry Monster Cry have an uncanny knack for melding superb vocals harmonies with simple yet burrowing and quite brilliant alt-pop melodies.

The second track to be taken from their aforementioned debut album, ‘Atlas’ is a song almost definitely written for the radio. Combining two-part harmonies with a bewitching mishmash of organs, piano, drums and mandolins, the single was recorded and produced in Dublin by Keith Lawless and mixed by Guy Massey, who has worked with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Manic Street Preachers and some dude called Paul McCartney.

Cry Monster Cry will play Dublin’s Button Factory on October 23. Tickets for the show go on sale this Wednesday, May 13.
