Ireland's music scene is in rude health right now.
With the likes of Kodaline and The Strypes making enormous inroads into British life, the country's musical exports have been granted a rare degree of prominence.
Hopefully this spotlight will illuminate We Cut Corners. A spiky, attitude-fuelled two piece, the band focusses on the twin efforts of guitarist John Duignan and drummer Conall O'Breachain.
New single 'Best Friend' was mixed by Ben Hillier and might just be their most potent, refined track to date. All primal, lumbering caveman drums and a guitarist who can hammer his instrument to within an inch of its life, 'Best Friend' is bloodied, undimmed loyalty writ large.
Clash is able to premiere the video for 'Best Friend' - animated by Kijek/Adamski, it's every bit as stunning, vivid and amusing as the music itself.
Watch it now.

'Best Friend' is set to be released on March 3rd.
