Irish Singer-Songwriter Cian Ducrot Senses Victory As He Spotlights Debut Album @ Brighton Dome

Brighton Dome is one of the few venues not to sell-out (so far) on Cian Ducrot's forthcoming tour. The rising Irish singer-songwriter is hot property .. and he's only just released his debut album, Victory!

Cian's next step comes as he shares the brand new single Everyone Who Falls In Love (Has Someone Else They're Thinking Of). 

The melancholy piano that introduces the song indicates that the song is heading in one direction, but those expectations are spun around as Cian sings the ear-catching lyric, "She still thinks of him when she touches my skin." 

Like many of Cian's songs to date, the single shows that for all the joys that come with it, romance can be messy, contradictory and confusing. 

That mood is emphasised by the production, which reflects the turmoil of the lyrics with dashes of corrosive beats and darker synth textures. 
Cian says: 

"'Everyone Who Falls In Love' is based on the idea that as you get older and enter relationships, both parties usually have a lot of baggage from past relationships that still affects them and that they still think about on a daily basis. 

"Whether it be love or pain or trauma or just simple memories, the truth is it takes time to escape those things that affected us so deeply and only time will help them pass. Everyone who falls in love has someone else they"re thinking of."
