Irish songwriter, producer, and artist Cian Ducrot releases a brand new song titled ‘Crocodiles’ (Darkroom/Interscope, Polydor UK). The song, Cian’s second release since signing with his new label, is a follow up to recent single “Not Usually Like This”. Another prime example of the young multidisciplinary stellar songwriting talent, “Crocodiles” (produced by Cian and co-written with collaborator Bill Maybury) proves to be an instant fan favourite; with its anthemic chorus and Cian’s cunning melody play.

Speaking about the track, Cian says “‘Crocodiles’ is a song I wrote after I experienced being let down by my closest friends when I needed them the most. Coming to terms with the idea that those you’d do anything for wouldn’t do the same for you hit me extremely hard.”
‘Crocodiles’ marks the second release off of Cian’s upcoming EP — his first with U.S. label Darkroom/Interscope Records and Polydor UK. His previous single ‘Not Usually Like This’ has already amassed over three million plays across DSPs not including the very special performance that Cian treated fans to on Mahogany Sessions, which has over 320,000 views – watch here.
Labelled as ‘a phenomenal songwriter’ by Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1, heralded as ‘one to watch’ by Notion Magazine and ‘on the brink of great things’ by the Daily Star, there’s plenty more to come from the up-and-coming 23-year-old.
ABOUT CIAN DUCROT
Raised in Cork and based in London but just as likely to be found recording in LA, Cian Ducrot takes a nomadic approach to pop music. Home for this 23-year-old singer, songwriter, producer and classically-trained multi-instrumentalist is wherever he happens to find his laptop and guitar — but no matter where he is. Growing up in a broken home, Cian sought relief in music, listening to his Mum playing everything from Bach to Chopin — often finding that music was a way to escape the trials of abuse, a turbulent family dynamic and more. It’s no surprise that he went on to focus on music in school, joining musicals, drama clubs, mastered different instruments and performing from a young age. Cian will eventually win a full scholarship to study classical flute at the Royal Academy of Music — one of the most prestigious performing arts schools in the world. Around the same time, Cian knew that to create original music he would have to teach himself how to produce. And so he did.
