Irish indie-rock group Cardinals have announced their debut EP Cardinals, alongside the new single, "If I Could Make You Care".

Speaking on the track, front man Euan Manning had the following to say about its themes: "There’s not much to say about the lyrics of the song past its title which was stolen from Frank Sinatra’s ‘I Could Make You Care’. It was co-written between myself and Oskar and we worked away at it quietly until it became something special between us. The arrangement with the band brought the drama and scale, it grew into something bigger than we expected. It was a great relief to write the song, like we had come to the end of some part of our lives."

"It’s a collection of songs that were written when we were living and playing in Cork City. It’s pop music at its core, personal, youthful, and, if you can see past the chaos and noise it’s extremely warm. There’s a narrative if you’ve got the heart to look for it. It’s our first EP and we’re looking forward to it being out there for everyone to hear," he adds, speaking on the EP as a whole.

Cardinals is set for release on 7 June via So Young Records, and is available to pre-order now.
