Multi-platinum-selling Irish band, The Coronas, are coming to Australia with the intention to leave their mark with their fifth highly acclaimed studio album TRUST THE WIRE.
They’ve brought their towering tunes into the present and staked their claim to be a cleverer Coldplay, The Sunday Times – Ireland
Always popular in Australia with their army of Irish fans The Coronas have decided to take another strike on the scene here so their army of expat fans can get another taste and to connect with the general Australian audience.
With announced show dates in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth – tickets are selling fast.
Boasting to have surprised their legion of fans with their extraordinary fifth album, as a result of their sonic leap-on from its predecessors, Trust the Wire sees the award-winning, arena-conquering Irish band fuse their arms-aloft melodic pop with lush electronics, spine-tingling atmospherics and a newfound sense of adventures from living in the mainstream jungle.
Spellbinding first single ‘We Couldn’t Fake It’ recounts the band’s realisation that they were right to trust their instincts. After being courted and schmoozed to sign on with a major record label only seeking sales the band decided to trust its intuition and create their own Independent business model. Written on the quartet’s return to their native Dublin after almost four years away, it captures the focus they found in leaving home, the fresh perspective it gave them and a soaring maturity in their songwriting.
We had to ask ourselves why we do this and what’s important to us. Is our aim to be as big as possible or be the best band we can? Our motivation had always been to make music that we love and keep improving. Maybe we lost sight of that. We had to step aside to refocus and in doing that, we got our ambition back.
TRUST THE WIRE, replete with the band’s trademark soaring vocals, driving guitar rhythms and pointed, yet sometimes poignant lyrics finds The Coronas’ four band members exploring age-old relatable themes of disappointment and disillusionment, sometimes at the hands of interpersonal relationships and sometimes via the fickle business they’ve chosen for a career. In its review of the new album,
