Dublin based electronic act Cut Once consists of Aisling Browne and Michael Heffernan. Cut Once’s sound has been described as dark electronic urban pop. With Michael on production duty, his love for Techno filters its way through the production with repetitive bass lines, rhythmical leads and his unconventional approach to the use of effects. On vocals, Aisling’s powerful yet dynamic melodies create hooks that you won’t forget easily. Her desire to harmonise transforms her vocals into a lush, atmospheric, chordal texture almost instrument like. Their live show reaffirms the chemistry the two can create between captivating vocals and hypnotizing beats.
Cut Once’s debut self-titled EP was released in 2015 and was praised for its ability to establish a distinct sound for the band while proving just how versatile the duo are.
“Usually a debut record suffers a myriad of teething problems such as rushed production or lack of identity. However this has never been the case for Cut Once; everything is where it should be… As first impressions go, this is a lasting one.” – The Last Mixed Tape
