Over the fast few years, Corasandel have quietly crafted elegant pop music of the dreamier variety, and in a few weeks, they’ll finally release their debut EP, All The Hours Are One. I’m delighted to share this new single with you, as it’s a fitting entry point to the band’s sound. The first minute and a half is filled with light vocals and these delicate guitar notes that sort of wallow in the air; the band don’t hold back forever, however, providing you with a little bit of an emphatic catharsis just after that, where you can ride their craft into pop bombast. They pull that back too, quietly letting you ride in the backseat of the song as we drive off into the sunset, guitar notes dancing and vocals fading into the past. It’s a glorious track, and one I hope you give some time; All The Hours Are One will be out on April 26th.
Corasandel is a UK outfit, stretching the expectations of what we define as shoegaze or dream pop. Today they drop their latest single, with two new tunes that show the band branching out into the distant regions of the shoegaze galaxy. Some of the guitar notes are easily set in that box, while some of the more elegant work gives an almost folk vision to the tune. The more I sit back and listen, the more I start to see some similarities with the Clientele, crafting these atmospheric post-rock songs that your body slowly absorbs.
