PRESENTED BY JOANNE COLLINS
PRODUCED BY JOHN HOUGH & JOANNE COLLINS
In September last year, Declan Sinnott released his first solo album on Warner Music. It's called 'I Love the Noise it Makes'. The title is based on a John Lennon remark. When asked If he liked a record because of the words or the music or the rhythm or the guitars he replied "It's just the noise it makes".
Declan has produced and/or played with a host of talented performers and musicians over the years: Christy Moore, Mary Black, Sinead Lohan, John Spillane, Moving Hearts and Horslips to name but a few. However for this album, he does all the singing and playing and knob twiddling himself. Declan's former work won't prepare you for 'I love the noise it makes'. It's as fresh as it is different.
From the bright and hopeful opening of "Sun shine in" to the playful fun of "It's just the Noise it Makes" to the hunger and loss of "Dark Companion" the album is a truly captivating work. It demands to be listened to repeatedly and with each listen it offers up a little more. It is a journey rather than a destination and it takes in a wide view of the human condition along the way. It may be an album of subtle pleasure and aural delicacy but it also grabs and captivates. 'I love the Noise it Makes' mixes an understated musical elegance and an almost McCartneyesque catchiness. The songs have great depth and character. These twelve songs cajole and transport the listener through a sometimes hauntingly real, often desperately hopeful journey that will remain long after the music dies away.
