TOUCAN to play Dolan’s on March 9th following release of new single

We Fell for Miles is the debut single from TOUCAN from their self-titled EP, out on March 16th.

We Fell for Miles is the debut single, released on March 2nd to immediate success on Facebook, and climbing into the top 30 on the iTunes singles charts. This is the first release from TOUCAN from their self titled EP, out on March 16th.

Lauded by Remy as a “soulful R’n’B vox and an appropriately exotic brass arrangement the track is brimming with good time feels and old school funk, think a Michael Kiwanuka and Stevie Wonder duet with Alabama Shakes providing the backing band and you’ll start to get the picture.”

TOUCAN is the irresistible funk-pop brainchild of singer-songwriter, Conor Clancy, and Martin Atkinson Borrull. Clancy is a song writer and performer from Waterford, Ireland, who takes his influences from disco and soul. Atkinson Borrull is a renowned musical director, arranger and keys player. He has arranged and produced for SÍOMHA, Nile St. James, Weenz and Dirt, and has toured with The Olllam (feat. Joe Dart).

We Fell for Miles is available on all streaming services as of today, and TOUCAN’s EP will be available on March 16th.

The duo is due to play Limerick’s very own music venue Dolan’s on March 9th.
