The Queer Northern-Ireland born Cormac revered by peers, queers and artists alike is marking the end of the year with a first curated compilation under his belt on his multidisciplinary imprint Polari Records. The release is out 15th of November, 2022.
No Tears In The Backroom Vol. 1 is a heady 8-track VA featuring the already established Polari affiliates as well as alluring newcomers to the label. Cormac‘s Polari Compilation serves as an unpretentious boisterous sonic outing and it offers a fun and loving home to the Polari chosen family.
“This is the first Polari Compilation and I’m happy to present such a strong debut. The title is in reference to a lyric from my track “Sparks”. Sometimes I receive tracks that don’t quite fit an EP or story, so the tracks featured are in one way stand alone tracks, but they also make sense as part of a family. They are a family of Polari rogues I guess, rogues that I love a lot.” – says Cormac.
Although featuring varied vibrant tracks from a diverse palette of artists, No Tears In The Backroom Vol. 1 remains cohesive throughout. The compilation includes contributions from Davis, Brynjolfur, Timothy Clerkin, Hard Ton, REES, ROTCIV, Sean Den and Budino.
