Scullion - Time Has Made a Change in Me

Formed in the mid-1970’s, Scullion are revered and feted as one of Ireland’s most innovative, original and brilliant live bands. Headed by Philip King, Sonny Condell, and Robbie Overson, their new record emphasises the band's musical curiosity and like all of the band records, it breaks new ground. Hear guest performances from Crash Ensemble, Conor O’Brien (Villagers), and Gemma Doherty (Saint Sister) throughout these songs. James Joyce, Bob Dylan and Sufjan Stevens are also woven into the DNA of this record, with the inspirational music of Sonny beating at the heart of the thing. The album was produced by Leon O’Neill and recorded by David Anthony Curley at The Clinic Dublin. Additional recording by Sonny Condell, Leon O’Neill, Conor O’Brien & Eugene Wogan.

It is stark and captivating, lurching forward with an unpredictable groove bouncing off deft but subtle fingerstyle guitar and intimate hand percussion. Deceptively complex rhythms lend character to the track which bubbles with intensity. The song takes a unique approach with its lyrics, as it explores social pressures to present a positive image and communication breakdowns within relationships.
