COQUIN MIGALE – S O C O T R A released 27th July 2015
Coquin Migale lit up up the blogosphere a few months ago with their stunning debut ‘GOLD’. Hell, even Huw Stephens was spinning it, at RADIO 1 which in turn started attracting attention from major labels.
Now they are back again with a second track from their ‘FEEL’ EP called ‘SOCOTRA’. And it looks like more of the same.
Alex Soper’s otherworldly vocals impressing again on this track with what can only be described as an explosion of a chorus. It’s pretty hard to put your finger on what Alex is singing about, but maybe that matters not. There’s a fragility and intensity to this track that manages to pull you in.
More new tracks are due at the end of summer.
18th June – Sofa Sounds – Newcastle (Alex Solo)
Sat 11th July – Surf Cafe – Tynemouth
Sat 25th July – Tramlines – Sheffield (Redhouse)
