TOUCAN is the musical alter ego of Irish singer/songwriter Conor Clancy (below) – a man with a penchant for soul and classic pop. His sweet and sensitive take on the genres has won him a cult following, playing sold-out shows across Ireland and the UK while his music has accumulated over 3 million streams on something called Spotify!
Discover what those 3 million already have, via Mr T’s lovely upcoming single, ‘Don’t Understand Why’ . It’s a gentle, insinuating blue-eyed soul work-out that reminds me a lot of the great music crafted by Mamas Gun. Conor’s vocal is distinctive and effortlessly smooth and though, as we said, the track has an inbuilt gentleness , it is brimming with optimism especially on the title hook – a little sunshine on a miserable Winter’s day!.
The singer says: “I’ve spent the last couple of years getting the sound to be exactly as I want it, and I’m buzzing to get this song out there. I’ve had a bit of a break from releasing new music, and I think “Don’t Understand Why” is the perfect track to kickstart the year of new releases – it’s bright, upbeat, and still laid back and groovy. It’s got a feel-good factor that’s become an integral part of the TOUCAN sound.”
Toucan’s ‘Don’t Understand Why’ is released February 9th and comes recommended. And by the way we don’t know why he’s called “Toucan” and for sure he deserves a better headline than the pedestrian one we’ve used above!
