Accompanying the single is an arresting video featuring the incredible Irish actor, Olwen Fouéré, who has been the recipient of a string of awards over the course of a career in film and theatre that spans almost four decades, including the Dublin Theatre Festival Samuel Beckett Award, the Herald Archangel Award of the Edinburgh Festivals, the Irish Times Special Tribute Award for outstanding achievement and contribution to Irish Theatre, and The Stage Award for Acting Excellence, to name a few.

Check out the video below:

ØXN say of the track: “Cruel Mother is a traditional song, possibly originating from the mid-18th century, intended at the time as a cautionary tale. Women were considered criminals if they had illegitimate children; were considered demonic rather than suffering from mental illness or distress. It’s a song of persecution, abuse, infantilism and guilt based on the version by Andy the Doorbum.”

CYRM, the debut album from ØXN, will be released on Friday 27th October. The band will play two completely sold-out shows at The Sugar Club, Dublin on Tue 31st October and Wed 1st November. Presented by Enthusiastic Eunuch and Foggy Notions, support will be from Iona Zajac (31/10) and Poor Creature (1/11).

CYRM is a six-track album featuring traditional folk songs and covers. Just over 45 minutes in total length, it features The Feast, written by Katie Kim; original arrangements of traditional folk songs: The Trees They Do Grow High, Love Henry and Cruel Mother – the latter uses parts of an arrangement by Andy Fenstermaker (Andy The Doorbum); and two covers: The Wife Of Michael Cleary by Maija Sofia and Farmer In The City by Scott Walker.
